Tecra A8: Mat * un DVD - Ram UJ - 841 s is not read / burn any disc

Hi all

I have a laptop Tecra A8 with Mat * un DVD - Ram UJ - 841 s. This device is not read / burn any disc. However, Mat * one bed the recovery CD at startup.

I tried everything: I deleted the registry entries (lower and upper), I uninstalled Ant again once the driver installed... but it doesn't work. Any help?

Best regards



In addition to the fact that you can boot from the Toshiba Recovery CD, I think that it s a problem of training material
I think it's a matter of calibration of lens readers possibly the lens can not calibrate correctly in the right position of s, and this is why the drive can't handle the inserted media.

This could be the worst case, because this fault is repairable by replacing the drive.

    I have read many topics all about problems with this unit, makes me regret buying the laptop, but for now, I'll have to try to fix it. My DVD device, I cannot access it if I put in a blank DVD or CD-ROM drive. When I click on the camera by computer or of the auto run pop-up menu, an error message appears saying "D: is not accessible incorrect function". If I insert a disk with some data on it it reads it quiet easily (DVD and CD-ROM of so it's not the calibrator laser). After reading works around the problem, I did the following:-

    -First I tried accessing the page of toshiba and reloading the drivers, without success

    -J' the continuation of many shooters of boredom, unsuccessfully tried

    -J' even tried formatting my laptop and reinstall windows (incidentally this violates my warranty and insurance?) and subsiquently once again, without success drivers

    I need help, and not only its desperate thank you very much!

    Hi André,.

    First, reinstall your system from the recovery CD will affect your insurance or guarantee. You can reinstall as often as you want.

    As for you problem with your optical drive, the first thing to check is that the option "Enable the Reording CD on this drive" is checked in the properties of the device option. Just right click on your optical drive in ' my computer and then select Properties option then the "recording" tab

    Finally, you shouldn't have to download all the drivers for your scanner, Microsoft base drivers are generally quite adequate. Usually, the drivers of Toshiba DVD-RAM support formatting of re = writeable disks and not the functioning of the drive itself.

    You can do the following: go to download drivers of Toshiba Europe site and check if there is an update of firmware for this specific player. If so, I strongly recommend you apply and check if it works.

    If the didn t of the firmware update worked later you assumed that the reader is defective and must be replaced.

  • Satellite A100: Mat * a DVD - RAM UJ - 841S will not play modern DVD

    It's weird, music CD's fine, game DVD and data DVDs no problem but if I want to watch a recent movie, my dvd drive is disabled. What a weird copy protection? I bought this partially to watch movies when the main TV set wasn't available and I feel ripped off the coast. Old DVDs are fine (the monster inc etc). Work on this late nights trying to see what is wrong. The DVD even work on my friends mac so I don't understand. He believes that it is a windows thing done on purpose.

    Could you tell us what films (title), you have a problem with?
    Perhaps you have trouble with the more recent Double-Layer (9 GB) DVD.

    Of course, it may be a copy protection, too cause some movies using a very unusual way to make sure that they play on a "locked region" disc.
    Using any software on your laptop that are able to "Rip" or "simulate" a DVD? If so, that the existence of such software could prevent the normal functioning of the specific movie titles

    Many films are also not not not to work on the readers of 'Region free '. These DVD movies check if your player is able to play a 'region' that is different than the current DVD that plays, and if they do, they will not start.

    Give us some comments over on that and perhaps we can find the reason for your question.



  • Tecra A8 - Mat * a DVD - RAM UJ-problem reading 841S

    I have Tecra A8-143 (PTA843E) Lap, WXP Pro SP2 original. Later, I installed SP3 and the problem with the topic. Finally the time Mat * one impossible reed VERBATIM DVD - R (4, 7 GB) discs, even those who got burned in 'home' with Nero (or record now, I'm not sure), although reed he earlier without problems.

    In addition, the reader can Reed DVD-R and Memorex CD - R Verbatim discs. In the meantime I have installed and uninstalled several programs and we hope that the point is in the configuration, but I afraid that SP3 is "fatal error" and I cannot flee from resettlement.

    It is strange to me that this driver for DVD - RAM is Microsoft. can I install Mat * original drivers? My experience is humble and I'll be very grateful for help.

    Thanks in advance.

    > It is strange to me that this driver for DVD - RAM is Microsoft. can I install Mat * original drivers?
    As noted in the previous announcement the CD/DVD drive is still controlled by Microsoft Windows driver!
    There is no other pilot who could control the STRANGE

    Back to your question;
    There are two reasons why your CD/DVD drive does not read the disc;
    First the disc would be insufficiently supported or the s drive laser lens cannot handle the disc to the stress matrix laser lens could also not be clean
    You could clean the lens with a cotton tip and alcohol
    In my case it helped

    Bought DriverWhiz (waste of money!)
    Tried to access disc command prompt that generated the message "incorrect function".
    Tried to use the enforcement function and access an exe file that I know is on the disk, but it comes up saying I need to format the drive
    Uninstall service packs
    I even thought it might be something to do with the MagicVirtual drive I had installed so I uninstalled completely which

  • Carpet * a DVD-RAM UJ-820 s do not read or burn discs

    Hi, I'm Natalie and I need help with my problem that occurs.

    Operating system:
    Windows XP Home Edition
    Laptop Toshiba Satellite
    Model A75-S229
    Multi recorder drive: CD and DVD

    The problem that happens is that I can not get any CD or DVD to work when I put them. What is happening is he's trying to load but makes the window "Not responding", unless I have the disc, then everything will be fine. What is also involved, is that I can't burn discs at all, at any speed.

    Also, I would add, when I go to my computer > right click on the DVD - RAM drive > properties and under the general tab it states:

    Type: CD player
    file system: unknown

    I don't know if that's the problem...

    Can someone help me?

    HI Isabelle.

    Please check in the Device Manager to see if there is a problem with your optical drive. Normally this will be displayed as an exclamation point against the device.

    The fact that the file system is listed as "unknown" is because the drive could not read the format of the disc so that Windors Explorer cannot identify any file structure.

    Your problem could be something very simple like a lens dirty or a faulty device driver. It is not easy to tell from your description exactly what can be wrong, but I would say you try some of the easy options so try first to clean the lens, and if this does not resolve your problem, then try to remove the drive (Device Manager) and reboot for the device will be installed new.

    If all else fails, you will have checked player be an authorized Service partner.

    Kind regards

    I agree with master... I don't know what kind of problems you have, but if the player doesn't work properly, it must be replaced. The warranty is certainly valid and the nearest authorized can help you with it.

    Maybe you made a mistake. Take your laptop to the nearest service and show them what you mean exactly. Here, we can only speculate what may be your problem.

    OK, I read the other posts on these discs. Mine will play DVD movies and play them. It will not read the dvd ROM CD CD-ROM etc.

    Can anyone help?
    Does anyone have information on how to remove these disks of the computer? Im sure I can install a new one myself if I really need to.
    Unfortunately the computer is just out of warranty

    Hi Robert,.

    Unfortunately, your problem sounds like a problem with the hardware with the optical drive. The player itself must be able to refocus its lenses to switch between DVD and CD formats, and also to pass the pressed DVD and DVD burned.

    I suggest you tyre remove the device from the Device Manager Control Panel, then restart your laptop so that the optical drive will be recognized as a new component hardware and Windows will then be re - install with standard drivers etc. If this does not work then it looks like a new drive will be necessary.

    Unfortunately you say not what model of laptop you have (the removal procedure is not the same in all cases), but in general if the car is equipped with in-house it is held in place with one or two screws accessible from the bottom of the laptop that should be removed first, then the optical drive can be slid out of its location.

    Thank you


    Hello Andy

    Sorry, but your description of the problem is a bit confusing to me. What do you mean exactly? According to the specifications of your laptop should have DVD Super-Multi drive (+ R) double layer. This means that you should be able to burn DVD-R/RW with no problems.

    You mean that you can't burn data or movies on blank media DVD - RW or DVD - RW media is not readable?

    By the way: separate for ODD driver is not available.

    HI - can anyone help? I am not able to burn discs, although I can play audio CDs. With the help of the software preinstalled but RecordNow error message which is no recorder. Help - please!
    Tried to uninstall and reinstall the drivers...


    I guess this problem is new and you were able to burn and play media in the past
    So everything looks like a hardware fault and replace the drive seem to be absolutely necessary.

    But have you tested several media? Have you tried to burn the CD or DVD with software like Nero? The RecordNow is not my favorite.

    You said
    > Have tried to uninstall and reinstall the drivers
    Can I ask how did you that? The CD/DVD drive using the common Windows driver and it s not necessary to install additional drivers.
    By the way; you won't find any special drivers designed for the CD/DVD drive.

    However, please also check if this Microsoft solution can help you:
