thanks all for the very useful links. I had similar problem when, after upgrading to Windows XP Home Ed SP2 from ME, the SD-C2502 CD/DVD ROM in mt Sony VAIO laptop would not play DVDs yet would play CDs OK. I too spent hours on the net looking for fixes; I was convinced it was a firmware issue. From these links, I started with the easiest optiom first - carefully cleaning the laser lens. Much to my relief this has cured the problem; great result thanks.

: i spent hours looking for drivers for this model to discover it was windows native thanks to the above posts...nice! i knew it should work, only it didnt. i also by this time knew MANY people were posting to say it DIDNT work and STOPPED working when they upgraded to XP SP2...then i found this page http://club.cdfreaks.com/showthread.php?t=103566
: people had found if they took it off and cleaned it out, it would work...so i thought...it cant be that EVERYONE needs to clean their DVD, so i just removed it (with the laptop powered on) and reattached it and MAGIC!!! it now works on both DVDs and CDs.
