Matshita dvd-ram uj-841s I/O device error

Hi I have a toshiba a100-756 laptop. The problem is i get the error messages: 'Drive is not accessible' 'The request could not be performed because of an I/O device error'. I have a Toshiba laptop using Windows XP and my drive is a MATSHITA DVD-RAM UJ-841S. I can't read DVDs or CDs. Th problem started when I had to recover my laptop using toshiba recovery media. Iv'e tried deleting driver, cleaning the lens, using different mediavbut to no avail. any help is greatly appreciated. Seems like the same problem, with the added flavor that one day it works and next day i switch on computer, without having changed anything, and it will not work. Next day, it might work again. For a while... Tried everything described on this page.

Since the drive functions on a bios level, try a bios update or flash. This should bring it back.

My toshiba satellite whith matshita dvd ram uj 841s


This is an unfortunate situation to have because there's nothing that you can do about it short of replacing the drive. Here's the issue: The Matshita, which is made by Panasonic, is a piece of junk! Therefore, because it's *not* a software issue but a hardware issue, there's nothing programatically that you can do to solve the issue. If your laptop is still under warantee, get Toshiba to replace your machine or put in a new drive. Beware that Toshiba will be very resistant because they've received this complalint from tons of customers...gee, wonder why?! Good luck!

Hi. I have a toshiba equium l20-198 laptop dvd burning problems


there could be 4 things that's wrong that I can think of.

1. try this first, go and force xp to take your updated drivers by telling it to install from a specific location->don't search. I will choose the driver to install->have disk->have disk->point it to the driver's location-> continue and it should install that specific driver.
2. the software you're using to burn with isn't playing nicely with your drive. try using cdburnerxp which is a free burning software and test the results of those burns.
3. the firmware on your drive is corrupted(happens from time to time). try installing a new firmware from matshita's website. remember, firmware is different from drivers.
4. the dvd drive itself is busted. try using an external drive to burn a dvd(if you have one available) or switch the drive out and see if that fixes things.

after looking at some forums, seems like this drive is ripe with issues but hopefully it's not a hardware issue in your case.

hope that helps.

Frst, try cleaning the lens in the optical drive with isopropyl alcohol using a soft, non-abrasive cotton ball.

If that doesn't work, we can try some high level bus settings in the Device Manager. Let me know!
