Sony Vaio computers can have issues with their DVD drives from time to time, but fixing them is easy enough if you know what you are doing. The registry can be a scary place, so be sure to follow the directions to get in and get out while doing this, as any files moved, renamed or deleted can have disastrous consequences. Also, if this does not work, you may have a physical error within the drive, and it would need to be replaced, not repaired.
