Hello spike. Can you locate the make and model of your ODD?

Spike not sure a NEW thread wouldn't have been better but I'll assist you the best that I can. ;)

Just a quick search for the lappy you have reveled this page at Sony. ;)

Your lappy specs

Here's what I read about your optical drive....

DVD+-RW/+-R DL/RAM

So it looks like you not only have DL support but DVD RAM as well... nice ODD if it works correctly. :)

If you wanna know what the other drives are in the other machine we need to know the model and make plus if you've ever changed anything in the machine or if someone else has..... removing the ODD will reveal the model and make if you have to go that far... easy to do but you have to turn the power OFF first. ;)
