Question about Computers & Internet
Hi, i am shailesh, my acer dvd/cd rw drive of laptop is not work propery means actully, it could not detect a cd or dvd in the drive then what can i do now? please reply me with solution
The problem when a cd or dvd player cannot detect a disc even though one is there can be two distinct problems. The most common is that the laser reader diode or led lense as some call it needs to be cleaned. Usually a good cd lense cleaner that looks like a cd works, but if it is not turning at all to start it off, it won't work. That is the second problem that if the disc does not turn at all, then it will give the same message or error. To be sure you need to take the cover off with it unplugged so that you can see the lens pointing up towards the middle of where the disc would be. Use a q-tip dipped in isopropyl alcohol to clean the lens then with the dry side of the q-tip to dry off any excess that has not evaporated. This usually fixes over 90% of those types of problems. Let me know if I can help you in any other way.

First step would be to try cleaning with a good quality dvd cleaner. Then see if drive detects. More than likely this problem is caused by a dirty laser lens or improper lens alignment. Cleaning should always be the first step in a problem you describe as 99% of the time it is the cure. Good luck.
