Problems on Matsushita drive

I have a Sony laptop PCG-FRV37 with a DVD RW from Matsushita model UJ-810. I can read and burn DVDs but it just don't work with CDs anymore (don't read or burn). The computer just say that ther is no media on the drive. Some times come back to work, but in some days it stop again. I saw many people reporting the same problem, but I couldn't find the solution. I tryed to upgrade the DVD firmware with the software supplied by sony, but the problem still the same. It seens to be a Software problem. Could you help me? DVD Ram U-850S Driver need it bad

Go to the website for the DVD Maker and download the latest drivers.
No reason this won't correct the problem.
Don't go to Sony unless they made the DVD burner.

I can burn cd's but not dvd's

Hello Rfd832,
What I see from the description is that the drive is a combo drive. Combo drives are CD-RW and DVD-ROM drives means
CD-RW = Compact Disk-Read Write
DVD-ROM = Digital Versatile Disk - Read Only Memory
so these drives can read and write CDs but can only read DVDs (Cannot write or burn DVDs)
If you want to be able to burn DVDs then you need to have DVD RW drive (either DVD+RW or DVD-RW)

You said that you are able to burn DVDs on other computer so please check the label on the DVD drive.. it should be DVD-RW/DVD+RW drive

Hope that helps.. :)

Thanks and Regards,

Matshita DVD-Ram UJ-810 I/O Device Error with most DVDs Cds

i'd actually rather recommend trying another external dvd writer. The model/make doesn't matter. take it into a pc repair shop, let them connect an external dvd writer. if it works, and you buy it they won't charge extra, if it doesn't work, well, they can't charge you either

Problems on Matsushita drive

You said it's a problem with the CD's right? Ok, then follow me through the rabbit hole here... open "my computer" right click on "DVD-RW Drive" and choose "properties" There are 4 tabs at the top, but you want to see "hardware" (third tab) Once in hardware, you'll want to highlight your DVD Drive and hit "properties" (button) Once that window opens, you'll have 5 tabs, of which, you'll want to choose "properties" (second tab) Make sure that "Enable digital CD audio for this CD-ROM device" is checked I know, there's a lot to go through but most of the complaints that I see are about Nero and it's "so called" compatibility with your laptop's ability to read DVD and Data. Once again, it's DVD that is effected and it seems that InCD has a way of messing with your Drive. Next best solution is to completely uninstall Nero, turn off the PC for a few minutes, then restart and reinstall nero, choosing the advanced installation. Make sure that you don't reinstall InCD, but also note that WinXP's writing ability is not turned on either.
