All of us need hard data, not more guesswork. Also some companies provide lead in codes in their descriptions. Does anyone have suggestions for me? A UJ like mine, or a UJ or something else? I have an Ferrari , UJ S which after about 13 months became dead. To be precise it seemed to work mechanically receiving and ejecting discs of any type , but always reported the disc as blank, and was inaccessible from any software NERO, NTI, Explorer, etc. I noticed however that your Maxell disks are in fact RitekG05 Made in Taiwan which strangely enough is the same as my Traxdata disks.

Faulty Apple Superdrives. – Steve’s Blog

Any Video Converter F Beware though, both Maxell and Verbatim have outsourced manufacturing to Taiwan and the quality can be iffy. Sony DVD-Rs are also thick enough to hold on without hitting the deck. Funny part is that it used to work when I first got it, burnt about 50 DVDs with no problems and now it does not work at all.

It appeared to burn at just over 8x speed Popcorn was set for best speed. The issue is definatly hardware related and not something as simple as software. The latest notebooks will undoubtedly contain a DVD burner, but the great majority will be lacking this feature.


Those same discs show up as 2x in my mini, though.

Unfortunatelly, I am totally out of my league when it comes to computer knowledge so, I hope that you guys can help…. The different letters after the model number represent different drive model revisions with different capabilities. Please expand on what you posted. Otherwise, you will need to take your computer to your local AASP for repairs.

I am having all kinds of trouble with this drive. These get used over and over. What issues are you having? Anyway its working at the moment…. Buy a small package of Taiyo-Yuden or Sony if you need additional proof. Steven Haigh on August 25, at 5: Sheez — what a bunch of whiners! Mine looks slighty worn if you ask me: Alex on January 28, at 7: I did have an issue with the web server that required a reboot today, and you may have been unlucky and your name was in the time the system was rebooted.

Notify me of follow-up comments by email. I am in the process of running numerous experiments, and my data does not align with what you are saying.

In the old matshtia days, there was only room for eight characters. The other recent change that happened is there are now three drive letters D,E and H that all refer to the drive where it use to just be the D drive. What is compatible with this drive?

Panasonic (Matshita) UJ-875 Superdrive, 32mm pickup (Apple) : Recycled

It suddenly will mstshita recognize blank DVD media it has used for years and it also has a good deal of trouble playing CDs, both home made and store bought. Does anyone have any solution for this? The parts are difficult to obtain, are generally more expensive, and people are nervous about opening up an expensive piece of equipment.

Well first You say that Matsushita are known to be compatible with most of the media. Came back today with a new mobo.
