Question about IBM (08K9513) Internal DVD Drive

1 Answer

Device clicks when I insert DVD and can't read the disk

I have a ThinkPad T41 with internal DVD drive. When I put a DVD in today, the machine goes Click, Click, Click for about 5 minutes. I ran WinDVD and got a No Drive / Disc error. I did the whole troubleshooting thing - uninstalling, reinstalling, system restore etc. etc. etc. No good. I did the PC Doctor test too, but since no disks can be read, I had to abort the test. I think it might be a problem with the actual player - maybe it's become loose or something. It's like the computer is trying to read the disk, but can't. Any ideas?

Try cleaning the lens, when a drive clicks in a certain way, its trying to read the disk, especially if you place your habd on the drive and it feels like its speedin gup and slowing down. Those are signs of the computer recalibrating the laser, or attemptong to, to read the media.

HOW TO EJECT A DISC IN LENOVO IDEAPAD 330


Sarthak Sharma and Carla Bunis want more answers
there are many ways to EJECT
1: the botton on the try , is marked EJECT
do so>>
2: the tiny hole on front of same tray use unbent paper clip, stuffed in hole and try ejects manually.even drive chassis in hand. by self.
3: windows is this ,not stated,but windows explorer
right click the DRIVE D:>? and click REJECT.
4: in windows, make sure the device manager does not list, the DVD as dead,red/yellow or unknown.
if device manager shows the drive missing or bad you need to get the new driver for it.
so right click the drive (be online) and click update drive.

no full model number stated, 330 is not full. number. so says Lenovo.

btw even a empty tray will eject.
if the disk is cracked or label fell , then only way
2 might work and cleaning the jam by HAND.
if way 2 fails.
only total dismantling the DVD drive can fix it.
true jams are hard work. ok?> physical world deal there.

not one poster here said, the button is dead.
saving this post from going to ALL wAYS it can fail and long.

DVD-RW drive does not read disks


the DVD-RW is faulty, take it in and get another one to replace it. the clicking noise may be coming from the rack gear inside the device and causing a malfunction.

The Cd/DVD Combo drive reads some CD/DVD disks but not all. There is no pattern with which ones it reads and which not.


You may need to contact your manufacturer to buy a new CD drive. Or look on ebay. There isn't much chance of fixing your drive because it is degenerating(happened to an old toshiba once). There are lots spares on ebay. Hope this helped . Please rate me if it did.

Having a trouble with my DVD-ROM - IBM ThinkPad T42


Internal the pickup assy. (the laser) there are three components that read the discs, one for DVD one for CD and one for the DVD-ROM its likely that the DVD-ROM laser has gone out. Take the drive out and get the part number and look it up online on ebay or the like :-)
