What type interface does my sony PCV RS520use for my DVD Burner ?


Since your hard drive uses IDE, so will your CDROM.

There are normally two IDE interfaces, with each interface having a primary and secondary connection (total of four connections, 2 on each).

You hard drive would be connected to the primary connection of the IDE interface 0, and the CD/DVD Rom would be connected to the secondary connection of the IDE interface 1.

Here is a link to some manuals you can look at in PDF format.

Overheating can cause "freezing" -- did the repair-shop used compressed-air to blow-out a bunch of dust & dirt ?

Rather than discarding the computer, take the "System Restore" CD-ROM that was originally shipped with the computer, and reinstall Windows. If you have lost those disks, contact Sony, and order a replacement CD-ROM.

Then, install a good, free, anti-virus product, e.g., "Microsoft Security Essentials":

to prevent it from getting re-infected.

Installing standard third-party optical drives in VAIO PCV-650 case


Hi there. I've worked for Sony VAIO and can assure you that the only solution is to get a Sony Branded Spare parts. The parts of Sony VAIO are very specific. As of now I see that the only solution for you is to either contact Sony Service Center or go for an external DVD Drive.
