Try cleaning the head with a burst of clean air from a compressor. Be careful not use air with oil or water mixed into it. Sometimes, with the mere blowing of air from your mouth would clean the lens.

  1. When running your pc, open the drawer.>
  2. clean the optical lance
  3. now you can fit to your pc
  4. If it does the same problemplease change the cd/dvd rw because the lance has defected.

or

browse the content of the CD, try to find the crack folder. Click -->"Browse"--> go to the folder named--> "Crack".

Inside that folder, you will find an--> ".exe" file (the executable of the game)-->"Copy" this file to --> the folder in your HDD, where you have installed the game.

PC doesn't find any probl with the dvd-rom, but it doesn't work


The teeth on sprockets do tend to occasionally implode! Or sometimes a faulty laser would produce similar symptoms. It's honestly not worth the time and effort to repair when a new drive doesn't cost that much. Just replace.

Sony dvd recorder model rdr -gx210


Geoffrey Thomas eui746@gmail.com I'm a RDR GX 210 Owner. I found this problem common with mine. I've found a rather crude but effective way to get my machine working.

If I get a cannot read from the disk message I polish the suface of the effending disk with a dry lint free ( typical cotton bussiness short or pure cotton bed sheet cloth), and re-insert.And Hey presto away it goes.

If anybodies interested I wrote a artical on why DVD don't work, offering solutions

Sony DVD Rom does not work...


IF you go to my computer or explore, and it does not work (EVER) then you either have a bad drive or bad controller.

More likely of the 2 is a bad drive. You can try a cd/dvd cleaning kit found at walmart, however it is unlikly that is the problem.

DVD Won't Play


You can try to uninstall the hardware, turn off the PC, and then allow Windows to find it when it reboots. Or you can try to update the drivers for it by going to the manufacturer's website. (google is your friend :D) You can also try the restore function located at: start -> all programs -> accessories -> system tools -> system restore restore it to a earlier time when it was working with no problems.
