Toshiba A205 Satellite CD Read problem

\015 I'm currently having a problem with my CD Drive. It can read DVD's, but it doesn't read Audio CDs or any other CDs. I want to know what I need to do to fix it\015

Answers :

I believe your laser is bad, depending on the type of disc it reads will require different strengths coming from the laser from the drive to read the information.

Just to be sure, take a damp q-tip with glass cleaner and gently clean the laser. Now try a few different audio cd's and if it doesn't work then the laser is definitely bad and the drive will have to be replaced.
