I’m having trouble with my brand new Toshiba laptop with a Matshita UJ-841S DVD burner. It does not recognize all the media it’s supposed to – here’s how it reacts:
- Audio CD’s – does not recognize them, reports I/O error when icon is clicked in My Computer
- Data CD’s – can read and write
- DVD’s (movies etc.) – can play them
- DVD writables: tried Maxell 8x DVD+R – hangs My Computer window if it’s open, have to close it by force; also tried Imation DVD-RW, does not recognize it at all
So basically I’m having trouble with DVD (re)writeables and audio CD’s. There is no updated firmware for this particular drive to be found. I downloaded all drivers pertaining to CD – DVD from the Toshiba website and it did not help.
I’m thinking about exchanging the laptop, but today is the last day I can do it in the store where I bought it – so please help!
