Dvd burner issues

\015 Will not burn back up disc since i had this laptop. Now it will not read dvd, starts out loading and then says no disc\015

Answers :

That means that lens are dirty or defective.

When DVD lens are dirty, often the unit can still read CD, but can lose CD/DVD writing or some DVD reading capabilities. This because the lens focus on a CD track in a different way from DVD, or when performing writing operation.

Try first cleaning the lens with a DVD cleaner disk. If you can access the lens you can also blow some canned air on the lens.

If\015\012that does not work, then the best thing to do is replacing the DVD drive.

You could also try cleaning the lens directly. But the DVD unit must be disassembled by unscrewing\015\012the screws at the bottom and at the back to access the lens pickup and\015\012clean lens directly with cotton tips and isopropyl software.
