    hi guys

    i have had my Sony DRU-510A DVD±RW Writer for only 10 days and looks like it has packed in already. Im dont know what happened to it but i was using Instand copy at the time and it popped up a error message when it started writing.
    The light on writer kept on flashing, so i rebooted my computer, manualing opened the tray using a pin to get my blank dvd out.
    My computer doeasnt recognises it, it flashes a few times when the computer boots up and thats all! I have tried reinstalling it , but no success.
    Would like to hear from expert members of whats likely to be the fault, before i take it back on Monday. I think i will be asking for a replaced straight away, I hope i am entitled to do that!!

    When you say tried reinstalling it have you unplugged the IDE and power cables at the back of the drive, rebooted the PC (with the drive disconnected) and then replugged in the drive? If the drive is not faulty then this should work. If it doesn't work then I would try a replacement drive.

    I returned my Sony writer back today to CCL Computers Bradford. They were very helpful, was asked whether I want a replaced or refund straight away. They didnt have any sony writers in stock, so as i couldnt wait I opted for a OEM version of the pioneer 105 which was £150 cheaper than the sony one. I know it doeasnt do +dvd's but i think I can live with that, and because it was a lot cheaper I can always opt for a new one a year or so later. i hope this one last for than 10 days!!
