You may try deleting upper & lower filters.
The fact that the Drive spins is that the drv hardware is functional.
what you need to find out is weather the computer interface is able to find it.if you are using the windows open 'my computer' or 'computer' window.
you should see it there. and when you open the disc and you find it empty then the disc is at fault.
if you are not finding the disc at all.
try some other software's that work with disc's like the nero & sonic and see if they detect it.
If they do then it could be windows up date that you need to fix this issue.
if all this do not work then Restore your computer with 'SYSTEM restore' facility.

Dvd writer not recognising any disc.just says insert disc


Make sure it has power (ejects). Check Device Manager in Safe Mode by pressing F8 during boot. Right click My Computer > Manage. Select Device Manager > View > Show Hidden Devices. Now delete all DVD/CD-ROMs and reboot. Windows will say "New Hardware Found" and install. Check BIOS by pressing F key (correct F key is noted during boot) and make sure BIOS see's the Optical Drive.

Hi. Check the transport mechanism of the laser head. The transport can get stuck with dust, hair or vibration. If the transport is stuck, the drive still appear but can't read the CD because the lens is not moving properly.

Clean the area around the lens with cotton buds (be careful not to scratch the lens). Move the lens mechanism away from the center (use a plastic paper clip, slide gently). Place a DVD/CD disc and reboot your laptop. The DVD will auto align the drive during boot-up.

Good luck.

Dvd drive will not read burned discs


The laser is weak and its not burning discs properly to begin with. Get a new drive put in there and that will take care of the problem cause a new drive will have a new laser in it.

My cd drive doesn't recognise the disk inserted


Can you see the information on the CD/DVD from Windows Explorer? (NOT Internet Explorer). Some CD's/DVD's just won't recognize correctly from Auto Play. If you can see what's on the disk (in Windows Explorer) try double clicking the Setup.exe or Run.exe from there and see if it loads. I have the same problem on some of mine.

DVD/CD drive burns, spins, won't read DVDs or CDs


CD and DVD use different lasers. You appear to have a bad or out of adjustment laser. Replace the drive.
