[qanda]This thread is about the Panasonic UJ-850. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]I need any help anybody can give. I bought an old Panasonic Toughbook, CF-48V. I was able to put Windows XP on it and it works fine. I decided to upgrade the optical drive and wanted to burn music CD's, etc. I bought a Panasonic UJ-850. It came with no firmware or even a bezel. I installed it and Windows identified it as UJ-841S? I was able to play a movie on it. I haven't tried to burn anything on it yet because the drive would not even recognize a music CD. Anything else I put in shows up, data discs, DVDs, software. But put in a store bought CD and it shows nothing. I figure I need firmware for the drive but I've looked. At Panasonic's site, nothing!
I see all the firmware stuff for the UJ-841S from Sony which does me no good. It is a UJ-850 anyway. At least, I figure something is not enabling it to see my CDs. I read on this board about the filters. I'm a newbie, bigtime, but if you think that may be a problem, tell me. On my filters, I see IMAPI and Redbook. Thats all.
Thanks in advance, my first post although I read on here alot.
