Question about Panasonic Matshita- | UJ-845-B | USB 2.0 | DVD-+RWRAMDL (GPUJ845BU) Burner

1 Answer

I have a Sony Vaio VGN-SZ230P. It has a Matshita UJ-842D. It was working fine until today. The drive shows up under 'My Computer' and 'Device Manager' however when I put in a CD or DVD it doesn't do anything. The tray will eject, take the CD, and the light will light up for a while. That's it. I tried to explore the CD and it shows 0MB on the CD, but I know there is info. on it. If the drive is dead, where can I get a new one? I tried searching, nothing. What else is compatible? Anything better? What do you recommend? I tried uninstalling the drive and restarting. I tried from Sony's site and nothing. Also, on Sony's site it says if you have 2 software programs installed (not sure of the 2, Roxio and something) it will cause a problem, but they released this fix. I tried that, still nothing. I tried to uninstall these programs too, nothing.

Sounds like it is your power supply going. I know this sounds way off base. But I have seen it many times. First this happens with the CD or DVD as they have are lower on the list for power allocation than other devices for power. If this is it next the hard drive will stop responding. This has been my experience in these matters. It might be the drive but I would say 70% chance of power supply.30% chance of drive.

My Matshita UJ-840D DVD/CD-ROM Drive Stopped working


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.
