It's most likely a hardware problem with the drive. You can try cleaning the laser carefully, but 95% of the time the drive needs to be replaced when users experience this problem.

    Just use a q-tip and clean the lens carefully in a circular motion, afterwards make sure there aren't any cotton fibers left behind.

    If that doesn't work, I've got one more thing you could try before replacing the drive.

    Let me know what happens.

Laptop CD/DVD Drive


I think buying a USB DVD drive is a very sensible idea as internal drives on laptops can be a pain to remove and fit and they are more prone to failure than their desktop brothers because of their flimsy construction.
