RE: Sony CD RW CRX230ED

dude, how'd it work out? Find a driver yet? I'm in the exact same boat.

Could you let me know if you find something? And I'll do the same for you.

Best,

Why does everyone need a driver for this cd-rw?
Installed on win98se and works fine. Works in DOS as well with atapi227b.exe DOS drivers from sony web site.

Hawk on October 20, 2004
RE: Sony CD RW CRX230ED

Is the CRX230ad and ed the same, and isn't this suppose to be one of the largest electronics companies in the world? My drive just quit on me...after I installed Nero 5.5.9.! Worked fine in Alcohol 120%, which by the way I should have stayed with, if anyone gets in touch with sony for answers or drivers please post. And did anyone try the firmware upgrade for the CRX230AD on sony's homepage, and did it make any difference?

©Dormant SouL on October 24, 2004
RE: Sony CD RW CRX230ED

I've had no problem w/most of the recogition of the CRX230ED.
B'sClip though wont recognize it.
I run Burn4Free for audio & CDBurnerXP for data.
Both work fine for each...Would b nice though, if someone could suggest a single prog. that has no prob doing both with the CRX230ED.
.....am currently D/L Nero6.3...we'll see.
But in the meentime? suggetions r welcome here.
Rob on October 30, 2004
RE: Sony CD RW CRX230ED

The problem here is that the older version of Nero at least up to 5.5.10.56 does not recognise the newer Sony CRX230ED drive. The drive detects etc. fine with XP so the issue is with Ahead (Nero) to come up with some support, or say hey its time to upgrade to V6 of their product as it has long superceded V5.
So all we need is a statement from Ahead in Germany.

RE: Sony CD RW CRX230ED

Hi all,

wouldn't any other driver for 230 series work? I bought CRX230ED but I havn't installed it yet so I'm just guessing.
me on November 17, 2004
RE: Sony CD RW CRX230ED

hey,

I just installed this drive and it doesn't need a driver (I'm running Win2000) . You just need a CD-burning software.

juan perez on June 9, 2006
RE: Sony CD RW CRX230ED

if you are using NERO with this CD-RW, try to update it. I recomend not using NERO. Works perfect with other SOFT. And XP recognizes it too.

Eric on June 30, 2008
RE: Sony CD RW CRX230ED

Hi Vikas,

It sounds like you may need to replace your drive. But before doing that, try prying the drive open using a knife or something. Then try closing and opening it.

If there is no power at all (i.e. no green light on the unit and the drive won't close), then it could be a loose power cable inside the computer. Open up the computer and check inside to see if the power cable to the drive (the one with a white connector on the end and 4 pins) is loose. If it is, try pushing it back into place to see if that resolves the issue.

Eric.
Tato Bledel on October 22, 2008
RE: Sony CD RW CRX230ED

The solution is to set the driver at the correct jumper setting.
i recommend toset it as secondary master.

I read a lot about this shit which is sony crx230. I have the same problem. I promised my friend that I will find out how to solve his problem with this cdrw. I know now why he got this box for free. It's cheaper to buy new cdrw with Nero oem version.
