Windows 7: Blu ray drive issues

Went ahead and uninstalled the driver. Rebooted. Everything is the same. I checked out windowscare. Haven't downloaded it yet. Do you know if I can save the firmware that's on in now, just in case something goes wrong with 1.4?

You can download the previous f/w along with 1.4 and reinstall the previous in case.
Is the issue that is is not working or just not displayed right in Exlporer? F/W updates will change how fast the drive burns/reads or make other disks compatible. The drivers will determine how its displayed.

There is no 2.0 firmware to dowload as far as I know. The highest is 1.4 according to the web site. Still don't understand how mine is 2.0 and the highest Sony shows is 1.4. I am hoping I can extract it before attempting to install v1.4.
The drive can read but it won't allow to write to any disc type.

Can you post a snip of where it shows your 2.0 firmware?

I think the Nero tool is reading wrong info, 1.4 is the latest. Go to control panel/Device Manager and expand the CD/DVD Drives right click a device then Properties then Details tab. In the drop-down menu go to Hardware ID's, the true firmware version will be as shown in the snip below. then we can start from there hopefully.

Shows the same thing too. That's where I looked first. Then downloaded Nero to confirm. Think I will send Sony an email to see what they have to say.

Sounds like a good idea. They may not have updated their download page.
Is the drive malfunctioning?

Can't write anything. Read only.

Sorry you did say that earlier.

Try this shot-in-the-dark. Power off, disconnect the power and data cables from the suspect drive and reboot. Then repeat after re-connecting it.
