Question about eMachines T5212 PC Desktop
After loading disc in DVD drive, and going to explore option on start menu, the disc is not showing as being in the drive tray. LED flashes and I can here the disc begin to spin, then it shuts down.
If this happens for every disc inserted (make sure that it's not just a scratched or dirty disc.), the laser lens probably needs to be cleaned. Since this is a desktop computer, you can't get to the lens very easily. Open the tray and use a can of compressed air to blow out the inside of the drive. If this fails, you can buy a lens cleaner disc and try that. (Some manufacturers don't recommend this, but I've never experienced any issues with it. Just be sure that the disc is made for cleaning CD/DVD drives.) The final option is to remove the drive from the PC case, remove the cover, and GENTLY clean the lens with a q-tip and alcohol. If all else fails, optical drives are extremely inexpensive, and very easy to replace.
**Note:Removing the case from the drive will void any applicable warranty.
