1. Completely remove any dvd/cd player/burner softwares (i.e. Nero, Power DVD, etc.).
2. Go to device manager and remove your DVD/CD device from the device list
3. Restart you laptop
4. Windows will then try to reinstall the device drivers again for the DVD drive.
5. After another restart, then reinstall your dvd softwares again.
Either the drive is bad or your using the wrong type of blank dvds.Try using DVD-R or DVD-RW for betters chances of success.Sometimes some of the new DVDs are bad.Make sure you try a couple different ones even from a new pack of DVDs.
This could be a glitch with your burning software. Try removing and reinstalling it, or using a different software. The other possibility is the drive, occassionally with a CD/DVD combo drive the DVD reader or burner will fail, leaving the CD end working.
Did you try another CD or just 1 CD could not read by your DVD RW? Would you please make the DVD poped out and re-set it again. It seems the problem of communication becasue the code rate of DVD and CD is different. Its not related with the lens.
