Answers :

Try cleaning the lens on the dvd/cd drive with a qtip and dip it in alcohol 70%. But I've personally done this few times with just water not having the alcohol around.

Carefully clean the lens with the wet end of the qtip, roll it a few times (max 3) then dry it with the other end and see if it can read your cd's
