Hello there khalid109q.

I'm sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but please refer to a couple of previous related FixYa post's:

http://www.fixya.com/support/t219907-matshita_drivers_toshiba_notebook.

Particularly, this passage in solution 1 by "koparoma" @ http://www.fixya.com/support/t350476-acer_5510_notebook_matshita_uj_845d_dvd:

"Unfortunately there are no updates available for the UJ-8xx series (except for Sony - which won't work on other machines) as it just uses an old generic Windows optical device driver."

I would have to say, after a diligent search of drivers (or ANYTHING for that matter) for your specific device (Mashita UJ-845D), the above quote loudly rings true. I encountered nothing but a void in my search as well.

Good luck, and post back with a status report and/or any further questions.

Your DVD Rom drive is faulty, you will need to go to a computer shop or an online auction site to buy one thats compatible with your laptop after you get this through the post on the back of your laptop will be a single screw with a picture next to it that looks like 3 Cd's by taking this screw out your DVD Rom drive will come out giving you access and to replace it.

Acer 5510 notebook Matshita UJ-845D DVD/CD-R Writer Problem


Unfortunately there are no updates available for the UJ-8xx series (except for Sony - which won't work on other machines) as it just uses an old generic Windows optical device driver.

Your problems lie elsewhere.

These units have very very very strong region restriction - no reported patches or fixes that I can find...

So they come with an original region (the local one for where you bought the laptop) set by the manufacturer. You only have 5 possible region changes before it locks on to the final region permanently*.

There is very little info on the Matsushita (now Panasonic) website - but it appears that when you insert a different region disk into the drive it will automatically change the region restriction setting to that new region (and there goes one of your 5 allowed changes??).

If this is correct then you may start with for example a region 2 restriction (whatever the local region is for your computer) and record various DVDs in region 2 format. Then one day you try (deliberately or accidentally) a region 4 disk. Your drive reads it and changes the default to ... region 4 (using one allowed change)... next you put in one of your old disks - and the drive restriction default is changed back to region 2 (using another of your 5 changes) - until you've used up the 5 changes - when it's locked.

Because it's an odd number, chances are you'll end up with a permanent non-local region restriction...

* and Panasonic/Matsushita will only change it for a cost apparently...

so not very good news...

To help you, try this handy little free tool. It will tell you whether your drive is restricted, which region it's currently set to; and how many changes of the 5 you've already used:

now if I could just find out how to change the current region...
