Replacement Drive

I have a Gateway laptop with a Matshita UJDA340 drive in it. It does not see any DVD type disk. All other CDs work ok. I need to be able to view and load map info from a DVD into the laptop. I am new to this, so be gentle…
I use the laptop on long distance motorcycle trips and need updated map info which is on a dvd and must be loaded onto the laptop. Should the 340 be able to read DVDs and if not, what suggestions as to a drive replacement? Thanls for any and all help… :bigsmile:

  1. UJDA-340 can not read any DVDs. Check nhere:
  2. I would replace it with either an NEC or a Pioneer DVD/RW drive. Check here:
