Hi,
i,m assuming this is A laptop Computer ?
The only thing you can try is this:-
go to My Computer/Control Panel/ System/Device Manager.
see if there are any yellow triangles or exclamation marks by your problem device. if so click un-install. then at the top of that page, there is a refresh icon or similar. which will rescan the systems bus.
failing this try add new hardware wizard, in control panel.
finally ensure the device is connected correctly, unlock/remove and re-insert. update any device drivers for this.

Hi, usually and error code in device manager means a sofware conflict with the device. You can try deleting the lower and upper filters in the registry if you feel comfortable. Here are the steps:
1) Close all open programs
2) Click on Start, Run, and type REGEDIT and press Enter
3) Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders

* HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
* SYSTEM
* CurrentControlSet
* Control
* Class
* {4D36E965-E325-11CE-
BFC1-08002BE10318}

4) This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right hand column.

* UpperFilters
* LowerFilters
* UpperFilters.bak
* LowerFilters.bak

5) If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed, right-click on them and choose Delete
6) After deleting the keys, close the Registry Editor
7) Reboot your computer
Regards,
Purito

Repair or replace Matshita UJ-840D drive.


The region code can only be changed up to 4 times and after the 4th change it locks onto that region.
You may be able to update the firmware to make the DVD drive region free, but if you make a mistake then you have a piece of junk.
The best solution :-
You can install software that defeats the region code, there may be some free programs on the Internet but I use RegionFree from
www.dvdidle.com it is not expensive.

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


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
