Clean it with mild soap and dry with a soft cloth. Rub the soap in gently with your fingers after a good rinse. Make sure there is no grit on the surface. If you feel anything but a glass-smooth texture under your fingers, rinse more and try again. Wipe out from the center very gently, do not wipe in a circular motion.

This is a common problem on HP laptops. Try updating the firmware on the DVD drive by searching on the web for the make and model number of the HP laptop and going from there.

Good luck...

I have a spi 2gb mp3 player and have lost the software disc i cannot find anything online to help me and the tech support for the spi site goes to an unbought site for godaddy.com this is ridiculous. win 7...


Try another computer (if available) to see if the player is reconised by that one. If it is reconised, there may be something wrong with your computer (windows should still reconise the device as a mp3 player, but would not be able to open it without the drivers). If you can't try another computer, try a linux live cd (I recomend Ubuntu http://www.ubuntu.com/) the live cd will not modify your computer unless you tell it to. To use the live cd insert it in the cd drive, reboot and in the bios menu select boot from cd. Using the live cd will allow the computer to run linux (another operating system) without installing it, meaning that you won't need to worry about iharming your computer. I reccomend this because if you use the live cd, you will have a different OS looking at the device, like having a fresh set of eyes, and it may be able to open the player (Ubuntu has great driver support).

Player will not read cd . Cd will not spin


Without me seeing it, it usually cannot read the disc and is caused by a defective, or needs to be adjusted or cleaned, laser assembly as long as it is every cd put in it. It can also be the disc spinner motor. Either one of those is the most likely cause. :)

The cd gets ejected without being read.


As long as it does that on more than 1 disc, it can be a couple of things. The lid has to be taken off so you can see and listen to what is happening. #1 If it takes it all the way in and spins the disc, it most likely cannot read the disc usually because the laser lens needs to be cleaned or the laser is defective. You will hear the lens going up and down, making a clicking noise over and over and then it ejects it. #2 If it cannot load it all the way in and does not even spin the disc, it is usually a rubber loading belt is slipping and needs to be cleaned or replaced. You will hear the motor running and running without taking the disc all the way in. It will never spin the disc, then eject it. Other things can cause it also but those 2 are the first things to look at. :)

System locks up when cd is inserted


The auto-run feature is probably forcing the drive to attempt to read the CD, and if the disc is corrupt, can cause the system to "freeze" while it attempts (and fails) to read the bad disc.

If you've tried mulitple discs, or one that you know works in another CD-ROM drive, it could be the CD drive itself. If that's the case, you can pick up a good CD/DVD writable drive for $25-$50, and takes 5 minutes to swap out.

Nad 502 CD will not recognise and play CD every time


HI.This will occur when the optical assembly becomes unstable. this ((Whole One Piece)), assembly incorporates the spin/load motor, optics housing /arm, tracking device and tracking rail. This is connected to the loading dock assembly. This 'NO Disc' or CD NOT PLAYABLE, code is the result of a failed or burned out lens, or misaligned loading mechanism. It is possible that you have a dirty lens cap. you can try using a cleaning disk in this case to confirm actual lens failure. if the cleaning doesn't restore normal reading capabilities, this will confirm my diagnosis.

You will need to have the optical assembly replaced in this case. once replaced, your unit will be able to read and track once more

I works mechanically, but doesn't play the CD


try cleaning the lens first use a lint free swab and GENTLY clean the lens. don't use any liquid on this. if that doesn't work then load a disc and gently spin the disc when it lifts into load posistion. if begins to spin on it's own then replace the spindel motor. if it still does not spin, replace the optical pickup, the EF sensors inside the pickup no longer have the ability to read (see) the disc.

Maybe your cd cannot be read anymore by your CD drive.
be sure that the cd is cleaned and no crack traces on it.
Please try another a very new CD/DVD to see if the CD drive can read.

if read then, your cd is damage. but there is some CD drive that cannot read some cd disc. You should select maybe the cd rom compatibility.
