SOURCE: Problem with matshita dvd-ram uj-850S

Your DVD drive was probably misaligned, probably due to some force applied to it such as when you mistakenly added two DVDs at the same time. Or it may be a factory defect. It is difficult to calibrate a DVD drive or any drive for that matter because of high precision needed.

You may try however to just clean the lens which may have been blocked with dirt. Just eject the drive, you will see the lens somewhere in the middle of the platform. Use a drop of 10% alcohol on the tip of a cotton bud and clean the lens without applying too much pressure.

SOURCE: CD/DVD Drive Doesn't work

Hi, Sorry to hear you are having problems,
One final test to try before declaring the drive dead:
Insert a bootable installation CD or DVD and restart right away. If the system ejects the disk, simply re-insert it as soon as possible after you hear the start up sound and then, immediately press the ( C ) button on your keyboard forcing the Mac to boot from the cd....
If your Mac boots, then the drive is OK it's your system that has a problem.
If the disk is ejected again, then you can declare the drive dead. It is a relatively inexpensive repair and if your Mac is still under warranty, then apple will take care of this no charge.
Good luck

I would consult Sony's website to see if they have released a firmware update for that drive for your computer model.

I have an iMac with a MATSHITADVD-R UJ-85J drive. I have been trying to burn some dvds using the TDK 16x DVD+R discs, but I keep getting an error code 0x80020022). I have tried rebooting my computer and...


I am not sure of the age of your imac but most of the drives now need 52 or just maybe the dvd that you are trying to burn has ablock that will not net you copy plus with some drives the burner will lock up or do a overrun which will not let you make any more dvd copys,cd copys can still be done however. I hope this helps and good luck.

The MATSHITA DVD-R UJ-846 rejects all CDs


Not sure about the iMac, but on a winders machine, just uninstall the CD/DVD and reboot.

Maybe you can do the same ???

The burn to my Matshita DVD-R UJ-85j drive failed. The device failed to respond properly, unable to recover or retry.


The error message seems to implicate the drive rather than the media, but to save yourself an expensive repair that may be unnecessary, try burning a completely different brand of blank disc, preferably two. If it works, your drive doesn't work well with the original brand (it happens). Otherwise, a replacement optical drive is indicated.

DVDs recorded & finalised on LG DR175 unrecognized by MacBook Pro


you may find the necessary codecs are not installed on your MacBook.
www.freecodecs.com and see if you can get them there (divx,xvid,mpeg1,mpeg2 or a codec pack- or ffd-show)
also update the drivers for the dvd drive.

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!
