    i appreciate the possible solution, though i just attempted the Microsoft Automated Troubleshooting Services program, it says there is nothing wrong with the drive.. yet i replace a disc with a different one, then the problem occurs, so i rerun the diagnostic tool, and its unable to fix the problem because it claims that the "media in CD/DVD drive is not readable (MATSHITA DVD-RAM UJ-850S) when it could previously ago

After i try to find the registry (which is not available)
Why not give this a try:

  1. Start your computer after SHUTDOWN
  2. After your DESKTOP appear on the screen for about 10 second, QUICKLY INSERT ANY CD/DVD (in my case I insert Glee
  3. Let the computer run for a while, don't do anything until it settle down
  4. Check at MY COMPUTER whether your cd is detected
  5. I got mine work this way!. Good Luck my friends!

I have an Acer Aspire 5100 laptop with a Matshita cd/dvd r/rw combo (uj-850s), and it performs all funtions except read a virgin dvd. And I also cant seem to find firmware update for it anywhere on earth....


What operating system are you using? Xp? Vista? Which version of XP/Vista? Home, Pro, etc.?

Blank disks cannot be read for the simple reason that there is nothing on them to read.

If you wish to burn a disk, you need burning software, such as Nero which is a professional burning system, but also a free program such as AmoK / Ultimate CD/DVD Burner / or Sun CD/DVD burner (make sure to uncheck the ads box during install to prevent ad displays)

The above have different capabilities, but what you need is a piece of burning software in order to write to a blank disk, so depending on what you need to burn, you may choose from above, seek out other software, or purchase a burning system such as Nero.

Cd rom not working


Please try the instructions provided in the third post of this thread.

I am not allowed to copy/paste content from other websites and thus must link you to it in order to comply with the site's terms of service.

However, hopefully that will solve your problem. Otherwise, it will be very, very hard to find a driver for Matshita drives, since Panasonic (which makes the Matshita cd/dvd drives) apparently abandoned all drivers and firmware for drives not currently being manufactured.

Thank you, Please rate if this was helpful.
