IMPORTANT: This procedure requires that CD/DVD authoring software be installed on the computer.

NOTE: Sony does not guarantee that all CD/DVD drives can read all recordable and rewritable discs.

  1. Within the authoring software, for a multisession disc, ensure both the last session and the disc are closed.
  2. If the disc was written using packet writing software, only a computer with packet writing software installed will be able to read the disc.
  3. When accessing data on a recordable or rewritable disc, ensure the drive is compatible with the specific media.

    NOTE: Different media types may require a different type of laser in order to read the stored information on the disc.
