Unless you can confirm whether or not the drive is bad, sony will not be able to do anything for you. Have you rebooted your pc?
Supernerd? you must be lost....
Either way, there are no drivers for dvd drives. It does not take a supernerd to read through the links that they personally provided to come to that conclusion.
If you have restarted, and still nothing, I would set up an rma.

Lol thank you and sorry just a little frustrated with the misses and with Sony and myself for buying crap I shouldn't.. Didn't mean to take it out on you.

I have rebooted for sure. It's a clean install a build that is IDENTICAL to my $300 build in my sig.

I'm certain it is just me being stupid.

Usually is.

I'm sure I will figure it out.

It does show up in bios. And I just have a kid hassling me for this rig. I bought a TON of these from newegg and would like to get them to work.

I have never had to ever do anything except just plug them in when it comes to optical drives though.

I am probably just missing something.

What's the drive named in the BIOS? Turn on plug and play in the bios, also if there is an option for hot swapping, enable it. Make sure it's the 3gb/s SATA port. Assuming it's SATA. One we're gonna do is force detect for the drive hopefully. So when you start up and nothing happens while the drive and the computer is running, switch SATA ports. (btw does the drive open and close when in Windows?) go to Computer right click 'properties' > device manager DVD drives "scan for hardware changes".

To get a wrap around your situation (no offensive should be retracted from this statement)
Gettin' married soon, Fiance's stressin' out, so are you, you're both getting pissy about other stressful things? (Both of you stop, you're about to spend the rest of your lives together, you both better make damn sure it's the greatest life you've both lived together.) No sense in getting mad, you'll end up smiling next to her anyways. You have built this rig for someone in exchange for payed labor and he is getting impatient? (Tell him to shut it, if he wants it faster he should have done this himself.)

Taxes? You still got a month brossia. I'd cut those out of your stressful timing. Worry about soon-to-be wife and getting school work done. Also taxact is super easy, rather cheap and very helpful when doing taxes. Mind you I had four W-2's all of which were easily calculated for an 1100 dollar refund. Computers are the biggest pain in the ass to actually work when it's actually labor, cause it's not fun it's just work.

Haha you make too much sense brother biggrin.gif

But the situation is EXACTLY how you described it and I am going to take a run and come back. BRB in about 15 =)

And I was very wrong as usual, it was NOT detecting it in BIOS.

I only see the hard drive in the BIOS?? Unplug the hard drive, keep DVD drive plugged in. Does it still not show up? If not the drive is faulty.

Don't be ashamed either, I've had like 2/4 optiarcs come in with a bad flash sozo.gif

I am back =)

I am going to go through and test all 6 of them.

{EDITED}

Okay so long story short one of them had a good flash, and once I installed that one they ALL worked.

The MoBo or OS or whatever got the driver from the good one right?

Which is it that needs the driver? I assume it is the OS now that I think about it. And I am only using the word driver because it clearly said when I put the 4th or 5th drive in that, "Driver for Sony Opticarc has been successfully installed." In the message center tray thing.

But so that is why they all work even the one's that were flashed bad?

So my question is. .

What do I do now?

I do not even know which ones are flashed bad or not anymore right?


ALSO I JUST WANT TO SAY THANK YOU TO BOTH OF YOU GUYS.

I REALLY REALLY APPRECIATE IT.

SORRY FOR BEING A WENIS.

It is going to work until I install a new OS right? And then what do I do then?

It is going to work until I install a new OS right? And then what do I do then?

The BIOS got the proper boot code form the working drive, and once the BIOS detected that there was a drive there it assumed previous boot code and more than likely finished flashing them.

If you can boot from the OS disk in the first place, all systems are go smile.gif

Bro, we all are wenis's when life gets hectic, I can't blame someone for getting frustrated when they're overwhelmed because I get the same way.


EDIT: Future nerd references firmware = driver. (As far as drives go.) If I remember right I actually think wither w2k or xp said firmware successfully installed.

Seconding this. It happens to all of use. Sorry, I walked away, I was in the middle of installing a new psu in my girls computer half way through trying to assist you. Hope everything works out. thumb.gif
