Describe functionality of the DVD drive in Sony VAIO Z Series
DVD drive is a device that reads or writes CD/DVD disks by using the technology of laser. Actually, the CD/DVD disks have millions of small scratches and dips inside of it. The DVD drive writes on these CD/DVDs with the electromagnetic waves near the light spectrum. This DVD drive spins the disk at a high speed and reads or writes the disk with the help of powerful laser using electromagnetic wave technology. Thus it reads and writes the CD/DVD disks.
Discuss about the need of drivers for using this hardware
Driver is the software which makes connection between the device and the operating system. This works as an interpreter between operating system and the DVD drive. The operating system cannot recognize your DVD drive until you install the driver. You may install the required DVD drivers either from Device Manager in Control Panel, or install manually from the device driver CD that comes from manufacturer when you purchase the laptop. For installing the dvd driver from Device Manager, go to Control Panel > Device Manager, then locate the DVD Drive listed in Device Manager, right click and choose Update Driver. This will install the device driver automatically for your dvd drive.
There are various tips which can be useful while using the DVD drier efficiently. Sometimes, you may face some issues while reading a disk. To solve this, close all the burner applications and media players and try to read a different disk. If ok, then the problem is in your disk. If not, you need to update the device driver. Sometimes, your drive may not eject disk. To solve this, first check the device. To do it, reboot your laptop; now try to eject the drive before loading of Windows. If the disk is ejected, then go to: start> run> msconfig> diagnostic start up and reboot. And, if it doesn’t eject at all, please contact service.
