I have an old Sony Viao desktop Over the years both the CD Rom & DVD rom drawers have broken.
I now have a system boot error & must insert a system disk & press enter to re load all my stuff.....Problem is the CD rom drive doesnt work. I bought an external CD ROM drive but I guess the computer doesnt recognize it.
I tried inserting the disc into both drives, One drive just grinds & the other nothing happens
Any ideas/suggestions...(other than throw it out)
:eek:)
Thanks

you will need to get hold of a internal dvd drive

new ones are cheap these days or a friend may have one lying around
