Having problems with your Gateway PC Laptops ?

Dvd drive will not read burned discs

\015 I burnt a data disc on my asus laptop, the disc was verified and worked on my asus, then I put the disc into my brothers gateway laptop to transfer the information. but it just saw the data disc as a blank disc. I've uninstalling and reinstalling the driver, disable burning on the drive so it won't ask to burn a disc. is it just dead or is it fixable\015

Answers :

Put the disc back into the Asus laptop to check disc content is still on the disc,if its still there then the gateway laptop needs the same burning program as the ASUS to read the disk from the ASUS,

\015\012Try reinstalling the burning program on the gateway laptop,
\015\012insert disc and check again
The laser is weak and its not burning discs properly to begin with. Get a new drive put in there and that will take care of the problem cause a new drive will have a new laser in it.
