My CD writer will not open to insert the CD. What


Look for the small hole on the faceplate of the CD or DVD drive. This is the manual release. Straighten the paperclip and insert it into the manual release hole until resistance is felt.

Once the resistance is felt, keep pushing the paper clip until the drawer opens a little.

Remove the paper clip and gently pull out the drawer until the disc is accessible.

QPS Burner for Roland VS-2480 crapped out again...

Listen. I had one of those. DO NOT BUY ANOTHER. They were made in Canada and the company has not been in business in over 5 years. Search for one that is compatible. TRUST ME Throw it away.

Samsung SH-S202J won't read blank disk

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

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.

DVD Duplicator has taken a crap!

DVD burners only last so long unfortunately! I've replaced many myself and have found that it's also not worth buying any lite-on in my opinion. Have a look around using the link below and you'l get a decent brand at a low price. Once a DVD writer has burned lot's of discs the lens itself becomes burnt out as far as I am aware, sometimes after 200 burns with cheap ones.

Individual drives - the pioneer at £18.99 isd a great buy!

hope this helps
