The writer is not reading

Hi, you can try a cleaning CD as writers are suseptable to dust; if this does'nt work it is probably a faulty laser and you will need to replace the writer.

Sir please help me.i have a samsung 52 32 52 writer which read only cd data content not dvd.sometimes it does not read any disk(dvd or cd )as well as not burning also.

Hardware fault.Try cleaning the lens using a can of compressed air and a q-tip. If this doesn't fix it then the dust has been baked on the lens and this is terminal. Junk this writer and buy a new one, it's cheap.
