Question about Micro Advantage CD & DVD Burners

CD/DVD burner tray won't open- unresponsive

I have home-brew PC running windows XP SP3, an Intel motherboard with a 2.5 GHz CPU, 1 Gbyte of RAM, several hard drives, and a Microadvantage model 16DDVDRW-A13 optical drive installed. The optical drive is unresponsive when I push the drive eject button or try the software eject on windows explorer. However, I know the drive works. I tried restarting the computer, but the drive still did not repond. Any suggestions?

    How does a person clean the gears? I know the optical drive would have to be taken apart. Is there a video online to show how to clean a cd / dvd optical drive or how to repair a stuck tray?

HL-DT-ST DVD-RAM GSA-H55N cannot detect dvd disc


I have same DVD writer and I am facing the same problem. During R&D for such failure on google I came to know there are two different Laser Diodes for CD and DVD. CD read write is working for me. I think DVD r-w laser has some problems. I am currently looking for options to get the new laser diode. As soon I replace the diode and see my DVD writer working. I will upload the video to replace the diode for you all.

One day the drives worked, now they don't?


You might be experiencing the results of years of registry clutter accumulating. I would recommend you download a free copy of CCleaner from here:
http://www.ccleaner.com/download and follow these instructions to clear out some of the clutter. Your system might just right itself!
Read this review and it will help you to get some familiarity with this product. http://www.ccleanerdownload.org/piriforms-ccleaner-the-step-by-step-review-tutorial
There are few times when I recommend this type of cleaning, but it sounds like you would benefit from it. Make sure when you are asked if you want to back up your registry that you do so. And if you know how to create a new restore point, I would recommend you do that before running CCleaner for the first time. That way if you have any issues you can restore your system back to the settings you had in effect before running the application.
Good luck, and let me know how it works out!
