This is my first post here.
For the last few months I have a problem with my MATSHITA UJ-845D drive.
At first everything was ok, but after a while I kept getting power caibration errors almost every time I tried to burn a cd.
I started using more expensive brands of blank cds, which seemed to work in the beginning, but after a while it got worse and my drive started having trouble reading most home-burned cds and dvds.
Now it's got to the point where it only reads original disks and doesnt even recognise all recorded ones.
I dont know if there's something wrong with the drive or if it needs some software/firmware update. In any case I'm thinking seriously about buying an external drive asap.
You're my last hope. Please help!!
ps: I have an acer aspire 1692WLMi if that's of any use.
