Sony DVD RW DW-D22A Problem

Specs: Windows XP, Pentium 4, 512 MB RAM
I've been having trouble burning DVD's on my Sony DVD RW DW-D22A and I looked into the problem myself. I downloaded the program to install the BYS3 driver and checked the "update" box on it and when I click start it instantly goes to 100% and then hangs on "programming... please wait". Is it supposed to do this?

That's not a driver, it's a firmware update - - it reprograms the onboard drive hardware. Optical drives rarely require a driver to be installed (beyond the native Windows one)

As you might imagine, reprogramming hardware can sometimes go awry, and should only be undertaken if it's a definite 'fix' for a known issue

I'm not one of those who think Bill Gates is the devil. I simply suspect that if Microsoft ever met up with the devil, it wouldn't need an interpreter.
