My combo drive can read 80mm discs before.. I've been using it for that purpose for over a year. But just last week, everytime I put an 80mm disc, the drive could no longer detect it. It can read cd's or the normal dvd's.. but not the 80mm ones anymore. What could be the problem? And how would I be able to fix it?

Hello?????????! Where have you been living these last five years?? Under a rock in Podunk, Iowa?? Remember when VHS was duking it out with Betamax back in the 1980s? VHS eventually won in 1988. Now it is the 21st century and BlueRay and HD-DVD just concluded their war for supremacy of the new recording/viewing format. In other words, your HD DVD will not play on your DVD machine. You can either stick with DVDs or buy a new machine. Read the paper; listen to talk radio, listen to a podcast; BE INFORMED.
simple format compatability issue.
you either don,t have the software on your computer.
Or the disks are unfinished or unfinalised, which means that there are no table-of-contents ( directory structure ) for windows to be able to understand the disks format.

Also the drive ( CD/DVD Rom ) may not be compatable with these disks. check your software read/write program, to see if the disks are supported.
ITs a dvd rom drive. It will not burn blank dvds in order to burn, it has to cd-r/cd-rw/dvd-r/dvd-rw. If a drive cannot write to a blank disc, it will eject it. Rom drives read only (Read Only Memory), Combo drives- burn cd's only read dvd's, and super drives both read and write to cds and dvds.
You can try to clean the lens with some lens cleaners that are available almost anywhere. But it's most likely that the DVD laser is no longer working. (there are different lasers for DVD and CD just to let you know...)
With DVD combo drives going down so fast in price, it might be better to just upgrade to a DVD combo lightscribe burner. (I paid $40 for one last week)
