Unlock laptop DVD

Hi, I have an IBM laptop with a MATSHITA UJDA760 DVD/CDRW. I have used up all the zone changes for the DVD and am now stuck on Zone 2. Is there a way to unlock the DVD so I can watch any zone? I'm not sure I trust all these websites that are selling codes and software programs. Thanks!

MATSHITA UJDA760 DVD/CDRW Drivers loaded succesfully but windows cannot find hardware device (Code 41)

* the electrical power is not reaching the drive -- if the drawer can open/close, then it is getting power;
* the "data" cable between the motherboard and the drive is not connected, or is broken;
* the electronics "inside" the drive are dead.

Take the laptop to a qualified computer-technician, for trouble-shooting, and for ordering/installing a replacement drive, because changing a CD-drive is not an "end-user" task.

Will not read or write on cd-rw disc om matshita ujda745 dvd/cdrw

Some CD or DVD writes work with certain type of CD's or DVD's
Find out if your drive is compatible with CD-RW- or CD-RW+
If that is out of the way, and still same problem, then drive must have a physical damage and need replacement.

My Matshita UJDA 750 DVD/CDRW wont recognize a blank DVD discs. How ever it does read both CDs and DVDs and only burns CDs.... please help

Are you trying to burn a dvd? If so from the spec you gave in the problem description your drive will burn cds(CDRW) but will only play dvds(DVD). If it stated DVDRW then you would be able to burn DVDs as in the CDRW.

Restart from hibernation

go to the system tray and click once on the "Safely Remove Hardware Icon"
click on your dvd/cdrw to stop it. when it says it's safe, go ahead and remove the drive.


reinstall the drive and windows should automatically pick it up

also. go to --

Start -> Control Panel -> Power Options ->
Under Power Schemes set all the options under the ac power header to NEVER

unless you want it to hibernate, go to the hibernation tab and uncheck the enable hibernation box

go to the Advanced tab and under power buttons --

Close Lid = StandBy
Press Power Button = Shut Off
Press Sleep Button = StandBy

Oh and while you are there make sure the
always show icon in taskbar is checked, so you can keep an eye on your power

click apply and click ok and reboot

let me know if this works for ya
