Now I LIKE Liteon very much. THey never give me any trouble and as long as you keep the lense clean, they burn for years upon years to come. Okay, so it CAN write, but can't read? Very odd indeed. I would strongly suggest first buying a CD Lense Cleaner disc. Don't be cheap. Get Memorex or Scotch 3M. I would Suggest Memorex because the brushes on THAT disc are SPECIALLY-designed to clean the lense, but NOT to damage it. Next, try installing Nero Ultra Edition and do a Burn-in or a Read/Write test with a CLEAN CD or DVD and see if it will tell you the Read/write data rate. If the lense is just a BIT dirty, it WILL give you those kind of problems.
If it won't read any disc you put in, consider getting a new DVD player, the eye is most likely gone bad. If it is only one disc that you can't read i would suggest a Scotch DVD Cleaner kit. Cleans and Repairs discs, helps prevent skipping and mistracking, and repairs minor surface scratches improving disc audio and image quality.
you need to
purchase a lazer disc cleaner it looks and works just like a normal dvd disc
but it has brushes on it that when put through the player brushes the dust of
the laser lens this needs to be done on a regular bases to keep your lazer
working to its optimum level and hense fixing your problem...
3M makes a CD lens cleaner that is a playable CD with micro brushes sticking out of the surface of the CD. You can find them at office supply stores, K-mart, etc. I don't remember where I bought mine, but it works great for a CD-recorder that I use in a high dust environment.
Here's a link to one that I just found by googling "3m cd lens cleaner"
I've never dealt with that vendor before, but it has a picture of the product so you can see what I'm talking about.
Sounds like you need to clean the lens on your PS2. The best solution is to find a DVD player lens cleaner from a local electronics store (make sure it is a good quality one, don't buy the cheapest one) and put it into your PS2 disc tray. It will play the disc using the DVD player on the PS2. Make sure you follow the directions for the lens cleaner very carefully, as you don't want to accidentally scratch your lens.
That should help with the reading issues. Good luck!
2 things to try here. The simplest is to put a disc drive cleaner into the dvd drive and run it a few times. If this doesn't solve your problem, consider installing the game to the harddrive. Sometimes this helps especially if the error occurs during loading or cutscenes.
I believe you can use a DVD cleaner
without voiding your warrenty. If you have a warrenty then call Xbox
tech support to get it fixed. And if you don't buy an extended warrenty
for $50 and then call them and tell them you need your Xbox fixed
steps to be followed.
a DVD lens cleaning disc.
Turn on your television and Xbox just like you normally would to play a video game.
your Xbox's disc drive, placing the lens cleaning disc in the drive
face-up. A lens cleaning disc works by sweeping small brushes over the
laser lens surface. These brushes are located on the bottom of the
disc; be careful not to touch the brushes---the microfiber brushes are
delicate and can become damaged easily.
the Xbox and let the machine power up; make sure your television's
volume is turned on. Your Xbox should automatically take you to the
system's standard CD player menu. If this does not happen, select the
menu manually using your Xbox controller.
playing the first track of the cleaning disc. Listen carefully, because
audio directions will play indicating the steps necessary for properly
using your cleaning disc. Each brand of lens cleaning disc will have
different steps, but they are typically very simple, involving tasks
like skipping ahead to different tracks or briefly putting the CD in
fast forward mode. If you cannot hear the audio directions, consult the
written instructions packaged with the disc.
the cleaning CD after you've followed the audio directions---a typical
cleaning cycle only takes a few minutes, and the audio directions will
tell you when cleaning is complete.
place the lens cleaning disc back in its case, avoiding damaging the
brushes on the bottom. Lens cleaners can be used multiple times, so
plan on using the cleaning disc regularly to help avoid future problems
with your Xbox console.
