Matshita DVD-RAM driver won't load on Acer Aspire L100 (Vista)

I have a Matshita DVD-RAM UJ-85JS drive on my Acer Aspire L100 running Vista. Device Manager is giving me the exclamation mark saying that something is wrong with the device. Turns out it is getting an error message 39 (can't load the driver--may be corrupted or missing).

I've tried to update the driver (but Vista thinks it has the most current driver). I've unistalled/reinstalled, but it still doesn't work. I've also been the Panasonic/Matshita site, but the pages won't even render tonight.... (argh!)

Anybody know of a fix?

Angela 1116 here:

go to:

it is where i found info on how to finally fix it. also-- after you do it, take battery out for 10 seconds to help it reset if it wants you to restart more than once.

the toshiba support walked me thru it and gave me this page.

Re: Matshita DVD-RAM driver won't load on Acer Aspire...

Go to start -> execute, type regedit and click OK.

Search for : HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/System/Currentcontrolset/Control/Class/

Click with right mouse button on key: {4d36e965-e325-11ce-bfc1-08002be10318} and choose for Export. Choose a directory and name to save the backup key

Remove in the right window: UpperFilters en LowerFilters

Restart your PC again. It will install you DVD/CD drive again.
If it won't work, you can always install your backup key by double clicking it. Good luck, it worked for me

Anyone know if the Matshita UJ-861h ATA drive will handle dual layer dvds?

DVD-ROM / ± R / ± RW / ± R DL - 8x/8x/6x/4x)

Looks like + and - R Dual Layer is a go!

My matshita uj-860s disc drive has stopped working

In my case, MATSHITA DVD-RAM UJ-860S did not want to write CD-R,-RW Verbatim using software NERO 8, but is easy to write their own software windows XP. 
in the Log file was as follows: 

Could not perform start of Disc-at-once 

Sense Key: 0x05 (KEY_ILLEGAL_REQUEST) 

Power calibration error 


Invalid field in parameter 

Change in method of recording NERO 8 Burning mode: DAO (Disc-at-once) at Burning mode: TAO (Track-At-Once) all have established! 
Simply drive MATSHITA was UNSUPPORTED software producers to write disks. 
Updating the software to burn CDs, as is windows XP supports the recording and includes drivers for the drive! :) 

Good luck!
