I'm currently having issues with my Sony CD-RW CRX225A drive.
Not more than a week ago, I was using my drive perfectly fine. However, I noticed as of yesterday it has mysteriously disappeared from the My Computer window and any CD I stick inside does not work, nor can be accessed in any way. However, the drive is reading perfectly fine in the Device Manager, reading with no problems at all.
I have used multiple means of getting my drive to work. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the drive. I have tried to update the drivers several times. I made sure that it was still reading in BIOS. Also, after reading previous posts, I have run many spyware removals and check for new spyware very regularly. However, it still does not show my E: drive accessable by any means.
I have noticed one thing, however. My drive reads in the Device Manager as a SONY CD-RW CRX225E SCSI drive, but on the actual drive, it reads as a CRX225A model.
Could anyone with experience in this field help me solve my problem? I do not believe that the drive is broken but... you're the professionals, not I.
