Slot-loading DVDRW - Unable to write

Before taking it down, I would suggest you try a cd/dvd lens cleaning cd. You could get one at any big electronics store. Clean the lens and see. If that doesnt work, look at getting the drive replaced. I've seen this before, it has been an indicator that the drive is starting to fail. Good luck.
