\015 I have a HP laptop with Vista Home Premium. The dvd rom can read the DVD but not CDs . It could read cd's also but once i played some old cd and after that it is not able to read cd's .\015\012\015\012Please let me how to fix this problem.\015\012I have tried lens cleaning but it did not work\302\240\011\011\011\015

Answers :

The lens is causing the problem. Simplifying a bit, on a DVD unit, the same lens must "focus" on a laser beam reflected by the disk. CD and DVD reflect laser beams on different frequencies.
\015\012A scratched or dirty lens may be able to read DVD and not CDs.
\015\012
\015\012Try first cleaning the lens with a CD cleaner product. you can also try cleaning the lens with isopropyl alcohol and cotton stub, be aware that there is risk to make situation worse using this technique. If you put too much force on lens , the optical drive may not work at all afterward.

\015\012If that does not work, rather than replacing the lens, on a laptop you replace the optical drive alltoghether.
