Matshita Dvd Ram Uj 841s Driver Free Download Install Update
This is the item included in my Toshiba Laptop. When I put a CD into the drive it either says it is a blank cd or it does not read it at all. Spins the disk and then stops.
I tried going into my redegit file but my computer can't find it. Like it doesn't exist. It still doesn't work. Hi I also have a similar problem to linda's however i have not installed vista i still run on XP , I also have a toshiba laptop.
I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling my driver and also installing updates but nothing seems to have cured the issue. I have used the toshiba device diagnostics programme which tells me that the device has failed the diagnostics test but the drives properties tell me that it is working properly!
Started off being intermitent, now does not recognise any discs. The driver is correctly installed and claims to be working. My Matshita dvd is on the device manager list with the error "Windows cannot load driver Code 39 ". It went out about a month ago. The drive tries to read but then the light just stays on and it doesnt do anything.
It had some troubles burning CD's sometimes, then just one day I turned it on and the drive quit working. My laptop is a Toshiba Satellite AS At first the computer said it couldnt load the drive so I did a complete system restore to a date where I did a full backup of my computer, but the problem persists and the computer thinks everything is working fine.
I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling, disabling and enabling and even checked Windows Update for newer driver updates and it says I have the most recent driver. Because I have no idea why it suddenly stopped working after working fine for almost 2 years, this problem is particularly difficult to figure out.
Hopefully you have some words of wisdom to share to help all of us out. Thanks in advance for your help! I have found if I make a copy of the original cd on my dell laptop the copy will then work with my Toshiba. I have searched for a real fix to the cd drive problem with no luck. Error I receive is "d: I will keep looking and let everyone know if I find a fix. I was lucky thet the drive read the restore disk OK. Have you tried making a copy of the restore disk on another computer? The copied disk reads OK in my drive but not the original.
I also agree the Toshiba should do something about this problem. I have worked with 5 Toshiba's out of 10 with this same trouble. I also tried the drive on my laptop this morning and it does not work again.
I am sure there is a hardware problem this the matSHITa drives. I don't think it's a software problem and reformating c: I think I will purchase an external drive an plug it into a USB port. Granted, I had to get some help figuring out the whole upper and lower filters thing, I just wanted to send you a note of thanks because your fix worked!!! For anyone getting Code 39 as the problem I would seriously recommend checking out Eric's reply to my post.
One thing is for sure: We have to bombard them with our feedback until they work for a better optical drive, as the laptop himself seem to be pretty resistant and reliable. Mine made Afrika dirtroads and flew to the Phillipines tighly squeezed. I think we need a hardware Guru.
Symptoms started with "bad disk" or "corrupted data" went back and forward from not reading CD's but reading DVDs and vice versa to finally creating only coaster discs when try to use it as a burner and major data corruption when installing software. The wide range of errors was described as "lens decalibration" to "IDE port failure" etc etc. If the driver would be the problem I'm sure Toshiba would have send it online by some mechanism everybody nows their online support is worst next to the optical drive even paying some cheap dollars to an "online chat group leader".
I agree that suppresing the buffers is a temporary solutions see high and low filters but who wannts to run a car suppresing the turbo to let the engine functional? My Toshiba has exactly the same prolems as Linda's does. The "fix" you suggested does not do it They won't answer their emails What can be done to get the drive working again? I own the Toshiba AS. I have windows XP no vista. What can I do to restore this? For some CD disks I get that dreaded "D: I found no help, nothing at all in Toshiba's site.
So much for customer relations. I guess all that remains is throwing this Toshiba junk in the garbage can and buying some other brand. This worked for me. I had to do a little searching to find out how to do it but here is how I did it.
I had no idea why it suddenly stopped working after working fine for more than 2 years. After locating this post I tried the above procedure and everything now works perfectly. It is imperative that you set a restore point for you registry before you try to edit it. Note If System Restore is turned off, you receive a message that asks whether you want to turn on System Restore now. I then began the edit of the registry.
To find and use these instructions: To edit the Windows registry you need to run regedit. Then type regedit and click Okay. Once this is complete RegEdit should open. Regedit is a program used to edit the Registry in Windows XP. You will see a series of directories. I then removed the upper and lower filter entries, close out regedit and restarted my computer to find I now have my drive back. I am so glad I found this forum. It is a Matshita just like all your other seekers above.
I went to the registry and removed the two entries for upperfilters and lowerfilters and now I can finally begin loading some software I paid a fair bit of money for. If I hadn't found this fix I was minutes away from going after the problem as if it were a hardware problem, so that would have been a mistake. I really knew it was not a hardware problem because the disc would spin and the device was there in the Device Manager and all.
Much trouble after one has gone to great lengths to find the driver on line and still fail. I found a solution online at http: This can happen as a result of installing other CD burning software. Im having this problem on an old pc that i tried to revive by installing win on. It was running xp and worked just fine, but had to be erased and done over. Anyone know what "function" its trying to do?
I am a bit surprised that this problem has not been resolve though it seems to be existent for such a long time with Toshiba Laptops. I had purchased a Toshiba Laptop Satellite A The drive was working OK for quite some time.
I had not even realised from when it was not working as I have not used it with DVDs for quite some time. The driver I have is 5. I had Windows xp installed with an option to upgrade to Windows Vista which I did not choose. Later I was updating with all the updates of Microsoft for the windows xp. Presentl I have Windows XP with serivce pack 3. When I was looking for a driver update I came across this site.
Is it because of some automatic updates of Windows XP which is affecting the drive which was working well. If there is a solution I too would like to know so that the problem is rectified. I would have thought a simple driver upgrade would have been the answer, however when i told it to update, it only found the driver. I then went to toshiba canada and checked for updated drivers, downloaded one for the dvd, and installed it, however no change to the cd reader. It would only read Store bought DVD's and thats it.
I searched in vain for a solution tried the registry stuff, drivers, looked for firmware there is none on and on. I would never suggest this to anyone but it was the last thing to try before buying a new internal drive. It worked perfectly for me, can read all disks no problem a little slow but hey its old. Found this "solution" here: As for burning it was a different problem.
