Running XP and my drivers for the Sony CD-RW CRX 160E. Looking for the orginal drivers. I ahve been on the Sony Site and all I have found is the update to this CD-RW. The update will not work unless the orginal drivers are installed.
The current drivers in the system (XP) are corrupt and will not work.

I am also looking for drivers for my sony DVD DDU1621.

Any help????????????

Hello SheharyaarSaahil:

The drive guide for the CD-RW does NOT work because that file is an upgrade. I need the ORGINAL drivers installed first and then I can upgrade.

The DVD driver link did not work either.

Any additional help???

The device manager has a highlighted (in yellow) !  I have uninstalled both the CD-RW and the DVD Rom and them reinstalled them. and XP states that it has founds the new hardware but then states it may not work properly.

Even the DVD software just recommended does not work. When I browze after installing new hardware the system is looking for an .inf file.

and if its Not the case, then try a sfc scan, may be it can restore those missing inf files !!

Goto START>RUN and type, cmd  (hit enter)
now type, sfc /scannow  (hit enter)
SFC scan will start scanning ur system
u will need ur WinXP CD in order to fix the corrupted windows system files, if found by scan.

This portion worked! But, the cd rom software ( the recording software) needs to be installed. I have tried the updated software but the system is still looking for the orginal drivers, so the upgrade will not work.
