Try to open it and clean the lens of the lasey "head". I have the same DVD drive in my lenovo Y410a, I was not able to read CD-RW and burn DVD. After cleaning it last night, I can now read CD-RW. I haven't tried to burn DVD yet, but I got good hope in it :)

Hi babulal,

I've experienced similar issues with a couple of DVD-RAM drives both in older computers and newer ones without the proper software installed. I've even had OEM burners that came with Roxio software and it wouldn't work, but in my limited experience with that particular problem Nero allowed it to work fine. I can't promise that will fix it, but if you can download a trial version of Nero 8 Ultra here. Give that a whirl and let me know.

HP Windows Vista Home Premium Media in CD/DVD drive is not readable (MATSHITA DVD-RAM UJ-861H ATA Device


Go to HP on line and seek the current drivers for the DVD drive. Or try the Control Panel/devices. Look at the Device list and seek out the C/DVD line and UPDATE DRIVERS from there.

CD/DVD RIVE NOT WORKING


This is a problem with several answers, however; for the most part, consider the Media that is inserted into the drive. If it is a COPY for example, the copy made on another computer may not line up correctly. The CD/DVD has magnetic lines that are true, very much like a phonograph record. If they do not line up correctly, they will not Read or Write. The other problem can be the Laser Head. If the reading head is misaligned, it too will have a problem reading data. The best way to get around the problem is to transfer the data from the CD/DVD media to a USB Flash drive, and go that route, or get an external USB CD/DVD for about 30 bucks at Wal Mart.

I'm using lenovo y500 series 4EQ laptop/vista home basic.however my DVD drive (matshita DVD-RAM-UJ-85JS) doesnt recognize dvds, blank DVDs in certain but it recognizes cds that came with the service pack


It may be necessary to upgrade the "firmware" (software residing inside the DVD unit) to recognize the "newest" of blank DVD media.

Each "blank" disk has an identifier electronically written onto the disk -- if the firmware does not recognize that identifier, it needs to be upgraded in order to recognize it.

Check Toshiba's "support" web-site for a firmware update.

kckaza -

Get a lens cleaning disc and run it following the instructions. You likely have dust or dirt on the lens which is making it difficult to read the blank DVDs. This is aq common problem that has a simple solution (They run about $10).

DVD ram not recognizing dvds/matshita DVD-RAM-UJ-85JS.


I too had the same problem, just take the DVD case out by unscrewing it from the bottom, then open the DVD case and jently clean the lens with a warm cloth. Put it back in and start your computer. It will work well.
