Having problems with your Fujitsu Siemens AMILO D-7830 Notebook ?

My dvd drive is no longer reading discs, when you enter a disc it makes a noise like its about to run then nothing it seems to be able to tell weather its a cd or dvd but does nothing for ages then say please insert disk

Answers :

I will assume that you have tried different disks such as cd and dvds and they have not worked.
\015\012And the device drivers are installed and functioning.
\015\012I would say you are correct in thinking this is a hardware issue but you may try cleaning the drive with a cd/dvd cleaner, but I think you will find you just need to replace it. It is most likely the eye that is not reading. If you clean it and it is still doing the same thing and you haven't updated the firmware or have updated the firmware, then just order yourself a replacement drive. They are easily installed and you can do it yourself.
\015\012Make sure that it is not under warranty before ordering the drive.

Their is a clicking noise coming from the drive when an audio cd is inserted but nothing otherwise. Any help would be appreciated, thank you very much.
