Hi there everybody, I have a sony vaio notebook PCG-7D1M with a matshita drive UJ-840D.
All I want to do is update the driver and/or the firmware for that drive.
I’ve been having several problems with all writing software ever since I installed nero (aproximately 20 percent burning success rate). Nero is now uninstalled and gone (I am sad to say), I have roxio, itunes, vso (great converter), lots of small free burners of the web and windows media burner, all of these will hardly ever burn an audio cd (esepcially if the music is a podcast or from itunes).
After trying all these burners (at least 10 in total) I have come to the conclusion that my drive is just not working properly. I have followed several threads with similar problems but all of the solutions offered just don’t seem to be compatible (downloaded drivers but wont install, updates wont install). Even the sony website link doesn’t list the model number of my notebook!!
Can anyone advise me of drivers/updates/solutions or do I just need another cd burning software program (please advise).
All of the problems started when I first learnt how to download films and cut them to dvd, was advised to download nero for the quick conversion rates to dvd format. Ever since then, even though nero has gone, writing any data is very unpredictable.
