any disks I put into it but will not burn. I have tried everything I can think of (ie...remove drive then reboot...update drivers for drive-no change...tried different
burning programs) - same result each time - drive doesnt find media.

Could this be a Sony rootkit in action...stopping any reproduction of video's / music?
Could the drive be failing...if so, is there some diagnotics(sp) software I could run on it?

Hiya

Are you still having this problem? If so, have you tried using another make of disk? Plus, what happens if you put a music cd in, does the drive read it?

Regards
