Asus DRW-241st stopped recognizing any DVD's though it still reads CD's. Other then that it seems to be running just fine.

Good day sir, Try to clean it with a CD lens cleaner if problem persist.I recommend replacing your optical disk drive or use it as a slave for reading CD's so that your new ODD will last long. in my opinion most DVDRAM, player etc. can read most formats except Bluray disc. using the device from reading CD,VCD and DVD lessen's the device life span.
sometimes if we rarely use the ODD its already not working.

Often in an attempt to bargain shop we settle for the off brand of CD selections. Most of the time any CD will do , but in some cases, the drive just wont recognize the disc as burnable media. This may be the case in the problem your having.

Won't read any cd

Go to device manager and check the properties on both controllers under IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers. They should be set to DMA under the advanced options. If set to PIO change it.

Wont recognize burned disks

This does sound like a defective drive, most likely a laser / reader issue, because the refractive properties of the CDR is different from a "pressed" disk it looks like thia failed TOC seek issue, the head starts at the center of the disk and reads outwards, the click noise is most likeley the head reaching the terminus (the outer limit of the motorised movement), the drive then unable to find the TOC gives up and decides the disk is unreadable. if this drive is within the manufacturer's Warrantee period I would reccommend sending it back.

Combo drive CD not reading, but DVD ok

it may have dual laser and one that reads cd's is faulty, but try uninstalling the dvd drive first then re installing it to see if it cures it, if not the drive will need replacing. Go to my computer>properties>hardware>device manager and look down the list for your cd/dvd drives and click the '+' sign then highlight your dvd drive and right click to delete. Restart the pc and windows will find the drive again automatically and install the drivers
