Problems with a Matshita UJDA720 CDRW/DVD
Posted on 2003-03-19
I have a HP pavilion zt1170 laptop. Running XP home, fully patched.
For some reason the Matshita UJDA720 cdrw/dvd is not recognizing burned cd's correctly.
It plays DVDs perfectly. It recognizes commercial CD's. It even recognizes some blank CD's that have content burned on to them.
But for some reason when certain CD's are inserted into the drive it pops up as a blank CD. Even though I know there is data on it, i.e. I can put the same cd into any of my other 'puters and have it see all the data. I can even burn data onto a blank on the laptop, reinsert it and it showes that it is blank but thinks the disk is full or not recordable. I can then take that cd to another machine and it works fine.
Driver manufacture: Microsoft
Driver date: 7/1/2001
Driver version: 5.1.2535.0
I've looked about and found newer drivers but could not get them to install. /me shrugs.
The two burning apps I've used is the HP app that comes bundled on the laptop and Nero. I also had my buddy burn a disc for me using Nero as well. Same results on all three.
Anyone have clue what could be going on here? I'm sure it's a driver issue of some sort but I'm having a hard time figuring it out.
