Hi, I operate Windows XP Home Edition with a Matshita UJ-840D CD-Rom Drive installed. Lately when I try and burn cd from Ashampoo Burning Studio, it tells me I need to update my firmware. I cannot find the right type of firmware. I have unistalled drive and used wizard to update driver but still I end up with the same drive model. Is there another drive that replaces this model. Could someone please help me. Thanks.

Windows NT and 2000 and XP and Vista and 7 have "built-in" device-drivers for all CD-ROM, CD-writers, DVD-ROM, and DVD-writer devices. So, there's no need to "download" nor "install" any device-driver.
If you want _FREE_ software to help you create/burn disks, access: http://WWW.MajorGeeks.com and search for 'AShampoo Burning 6'. This is _FREE_ software that works fine.
Usually when you get a 4300 error when you are writing to a disk it means one of two things.
1. The communication from the motherboard to the cd-rom is bad. Meaning a bad or loose cable connected to the cd-rom drive.
2. You have another cd-rom drive installed or another IDE device installed in your PC and they are both set up on Master or Slave and the operating system is having an issue sending the data to the right device.
If neither of these are YOUR issue, then I would take the CD-ROM drive out and check it on a friends/family member's pc to make sure it's not the drive itself.
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.
First Go to control panel- System icon- Hardware Tab- Device manager Expand the CD/DVD roms- Right click on your CD/DVD drive and Uninstall it.
Now download the utility from the following link and just run it on your system. http://www.dougknox.com/xp/utils/XP_CD-DVD-Fix.zip
It will take a quick minute to run this utility.
After this restart your computer. It should work fine
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 E: MATSHITA DVD-RAM UJ-860S
ACTION! :) 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! :)
