    I just found out any Sony Model with original WinDVD 8 for VAIO will work

    Can anyone who owns a Sony Notebook pls kindly
    upload Sony WinDVD 8 for VAIO to this link http://s21.quicksharing.com/
    And pls kindly post download link

    I just formated my SZ480 CTO and lost all drivers & utilities
    I dont know what I was thinking
    OS is Vista Business, bad luck I cant watch DVD's
    U will find original drivers/utilities in the recovery drive or C:

    Pls anyone!!!!

    well you said you have reformatted the drive. not "reparitioned" it. therefor you still have your recovery partition. power on your vaio then press F10 key in succession. you should be taken to the recovery screen. :)

    why not use vlc (it's free) then stream the dvd contents by going file - stream - locate your device

    why don't you try to stream your dvd vids using the method i told you earlier. if you're desperate enought you'd try it. it's actually good. much better than any other player i have

    i have deleted a lot of software that came with my vaio. windvd was one of them. why? because VLC PLAYS EVERYTHING!

    Hmmm... I still prefer CyberLink PowerDVD. But either way, WinDVD has this cool interface like Windows Media Player 11. Another question, have you tried creating a recovery DVD? :D

    try THIS

    i don't know if it will work without the existing WinDVD installation. But try it first. If it didn't, i'll try to upload the one in the sony installation DVD.
