Your DVD ROM lens has became weak.
and it cannot be repaired.
But if you manage to open the DVD ROM clean the dust in it & it will start working again but be careful remember that no power should be attached to ROM.
or you can buy a lens cleaner from market and try that.
pls rate my solution
thankyou

DVD Writer cannot read a blank DVD


is this the first time you are trying to read a blank DVD on it?what program are you using in reading it?explorer will not automatically recognise blank DVD's but programs like NERO will.
Are you using a range of blank media you have used before?There is an issue with blank media in as much
how they are pressed/manufactured etc. To ensure compatibilty with the ever increasing range,an update to the burner is usually all that is needed, this is called firmware upgrade.
Are you using the correct format disks?
Most drives will read anything, and most burners are
now "all formats", but you may have a burner that is
either one or other, not both, thats to say, your burner
maybe only a "DVD+R/RW" take note of the "plus" sign whereas your blank media maybe "DVD-R/RW".

MY DVD-RE IS NOT READING ANY CD OR DVD..WHEN I M INSERTING ANY DISK IT KEEPS ON READING IT


Try using a Iris eye cleaning disk. Mosxt times when constant reading occurs or it says no disk it is the iris inside that has become occluded with dirt. Checkl that there are no finger marks on the disk and it is clean too

Once you have run the cleaning disk use a non scratched clean disk to check its load and read ability before trying in the disks that you had trouble with.

If they still give trouble then the problem will be with those disks and not the laser in the unit.

Please rate my help++++Thanks for using FIXYA

Can't read some burnt dvds


Try updateing your drivers firmware.
also cleaning the lens with a lens cleaning cd/dvd kit.

if that doesnt solve the problem then the lens system would need to be replaced -> better to buy a new drive.
