    how u cleaned lens like this if not try this

    open the dvd tray u can see that shiny eye like thing try cleaning th lens gently in round movement with a tissue paper or very soft cloth used to clean lcd screens see if it works , other wise ur DVD drive lens got weak from use now adays service centers are getting tons of them everyday for replacements and this MATSHITA Drives are No : 1 in fault i have experienced personally thats why all vendors HP , Acer, and Dell all have switched to other brands as OPTIARC , NEC , TOSHIBA they are good if u compare them

    u can find one on ebay cheap just look out for the bezel and size is always universal typebut u need to put ur original bezel on it it can come out easily ask me for tutorial if u want
    if u go to OEM like HP or Toshiba they will charge u double!

There error reads that "this type of disc cannot


The Systems that I have is an SC-HT70/SC-HT65 which appears to be almost the same type of system. My system cannot play the following disc:
*DVD with an unsuitable region number
*DVD-audio
*PAL system discs
*DVD-ROM
*DVD-R
*DVD-RAM
*+RW
8DIVX Video Disc
*CD-ROM
*VSD
*CDV
*CD-G
*CVD
*SACD
*SVCD
*Photo CD etc.
Therefore, you will not be able to play any of these in your system.
If you are in the USA or Canada, you can play any DVDs that is marked with the number 1 or ALL.
Hope this helps

NEW gcc-h23n will not read anything


If not reading DVD is a pattern (it won;t read ANY DVD, no matter if it's a burned one or an original movie) then the lens is dead. I'm afraid you'll have to go get a new one (new drives are very cheap, usually around 25-30$)

LG CD/DVD combo does not recognize virgin DVD´s


DVD combo do not burn DVD's they can only read DVD read CD and burn CD to burn on a dvd you need a dvd writer. A DVD combo is a combination of just a DVD ROM and a CD-RW.

with some models (even of LG) you only get one drive DVD/CD-RW but in dome version it shows as two different drives DVD and CD-RW. consider this as partioning of a drive if its to be analogued to HDD (though its not partioning its just diffrent PROMS)

Hope you understand that there is nothing wrong with your combo its just that you are expecting it to be a DVD-RAM which it is not.

My dvd combo does not read dvd


There are separate lasers for CD reading, and for DVD reading. This is why it is possible to have a drive that reads only CDs but not DVDs, or the other way around. And your particular combo unit seems to have a lot of these problems. Since the drive doesn't work it's almost definitely a problem with the drive itself (I'm assuming that there is nothing wrong with the discs you tried to read). If that drive is still covered by a warranty period, send it back for repairs. Otherwise, I can't see the harm in trying to tinker with it yourself as the DVD portion of it is dead anyways. Ummm, on a side note...CompUSA is going out of business and they are selling things cheap. I got a DVD lightscribe burner for $40...booyah!
