Matshita DVD-Ram UJ-810 I/O Device Error with most DVDs Cds

This has been a four-year problem. While under warranty I would send it out, they would say it was fixed. I would play about two DVDs and then the I/O errors would start again. Even the Recovery Disk would not often work.

Now that it is out of warranty AND the Matshita DVD is still not working, is it worth replacing the DVD Rom? And if so, with what system?

It almost makes no sense to put in the same part since from what I am seeing on the other postings, the Matshita DVD Rom drive has a pretty bad track record in the Toshiba laptops. Any ideas? Have Portege M200 Tablet PC with WinXP Pro SP3.
Tried unsuccessfully to hook up Matshita DVD RAM UJ-810 USB2.0. Computer does not recognize its existence. drive doesn't respond when i put any disk in it.when i try to burn cds it keeps telling me to insert a blank disk,appreciate any help.oh yeah,it tells me the device is working properly.

I'd actually rather recommend trying another external dvd writer. The model/make doesn't matter. take it into a pc repair shop, let them connect an external dvd writer. if it works, and you buy it they won't charge extra, if it doesn't work, well, they can't charge you either

Try cleaning the disc. Getting that error means something is wrong with the lense of the drive. If disk cleaner wont do it, need to send it for repair.

You can do that, but you're really just extending the headache. Matshita is **** (look closely at the sequence of letters in the name) :)

Buy a brand-name USB external DVD burner and go on about your life.
