    Can anyone point me to where I can find help for my Matshita DVD RAM UJ-850S ATA Device?
    I've been searching for help on this on the Internet for a while and after reading a lot of posts about this Device, I haven't found a fix.
    This driver is in my Acer Aspire 5100-5528 Laptop
    Rarely does it read a DVD or CD. I burn with it, it says it burned successfully but when I check, it shows empty or doesn't recognize that a CD or DVD is in the Drive anymore.
    I cleaned it with alcohol and the drivers says it's up to date.
    :confused:

    There are no drivers for optical disks aside from those included in Windows, so thats not going to be the issue.

    Try this Microsoft Fixit: http://support.microsoft.com/mats/cd_dvd_drive_problems

    But the drive itself may simply have worn out and will need to be replaced.

    Thanks Triple6, I will give that a try. I can't see that it would be worn out because I've had that problem for a long time and I rarely used it.

    They can still break or can come faulty from the factory, stuff breaks its a fact of life.

    But hopefully the software fix will work.
