I use the same program for burning as well.. this has happened to me before so let's see if what i've done will work for you..

be sure to try uninstalling and reinstalling the driver's that came with the item.. if you don't have them, the manufacturer site should have them... try this site for firmware download, maybe it will help..

have you tried going into your cdrom properties by right clicking on it? if not, goto start then to computer, then highlight the drive in ??, right click and then goto properties, find the area where you can restore default, then apply.. reboot pc and see if that helps..

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


Here is what the HP site quoted as specs:

Optics: Matshita DVD-RAM Uj-861H (CD-ROM / -R/-RW - 24x/24x/24x,
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 

whether 

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! :) 

Good luck!

HP Pavilion a1140n PC Desktop dvdw drive will read and write cds but not dvds


Have checked to see if there is a firmware update? You should be able to find out on HP's website or alternatively on the website of the DVD/R's manufacturer.
