DVD-RAM drive error!

[qanda]This thread is about the Matshita UJ-850S. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]Hi there,

This is my first post at the forums.

I have a Sony Vaio VGC-LS1 machine, running XP MCE 2005.

It’s optical drive is Matshita UJ 846S & its firmware is F200, its a slot loading Super Multi drive.

It’s using windows driver signed 2001.

I never used its drive till a few days ago.

It only reads CDs & takes ages to read a DVD.

Won’t write a CD or a DVD.

Hoping to hear expert your advice/ opinion from you smart geniuses!


Hi there,

I just did a clean install of XP MCE & Nero 7.10.11…

The drive ONLY reads & burns CD-R media.

Its supposed to read write CD, DVDR, DVDRW, DVRAM.

What could possibly be the issues?

Sony support is of no help than get it serviced, remove filters in registry…done all but no positive results?

Hoping to hear from you smart geniuses.
