Question about Taiyo Yuden Electronics - Others
Hey there. I have recently had a number of problems with what I suspect is my Dvd burner drive on my dell PC. I have two drives, one a dvd rom and the other a writer.
For a year and half I have been backing up hundreds of my dvds on this drive, but recently, despite the burns being 'successful', they judder and stop in many places when played back.
At first I suspected it was the media but it happened with different discs too. After the 9th burn that suffered the same fate I noticed that all the affected discs were scratched on the back after they came out of the drive. They were blemish free before they went in, and the source files they were burning off were fine too.
Could my drive have finally had it? Is it scratching and damaging my discs whilst burning?
If you have ever opened the DVD writer ? if so please try opening get some help at youtube and when you open it try cleaning the optical laser read/write head with isopropyl alcohol (very little) on a cotton swab or ear cleaning buds.they are very delicate use little force and wait till all liquid dries.also see for any dust like one mentioned which might have scratched the disc which rotates at high speed.Also lubricate moving parts with olive oil.very little otherwise these gather dust best of luck.If this does not help try replacing dvd writer
