I have matashi ta UJ850S in my asus c90 laptop..
my problem is that the drive will only read the original discs from any company.. if it is a burnt or copied dd or cd, it will not read and when i load up a dvd or cd it will come up as an empty cd and dvd..
i have checked and i do not have any upper and lower filters in the registry.
when i check for the driver update, its updated to the latest firmware..
also is it supposed to be a dvd ram or shud it read as dvd rom drive in device manager.. still learning about all this.
also there is a question mark against it in the device manager. I have deleted the driver and rebooted a few times. vista 64 bit and 32 bit ultimate, as i have dual boot will reinstall the driver and same thing again. I have tried to reboot from the vista installation dvd it works.. only thing. any burnt dvd or cd, i use sony, panasonic or verbatim.. it will not read.. sometimes it will not even burn the disc. i used to use nero but now i have got rid of it.. currently there is no burning software installed. I also do not have itunes etc as i read somewhre they seem to cause problem as well...
is there something i can do to fix this issue???
I am attaching a screen shot of the device manager view...
