Question about LaCie 300722 DVD±RW Burner

Won't recognize disc-cd or dvd

Everything seems normal lights, disc drawer opens and closes, but the disc doesn't get recognized. It clicks every few seconds and then it ejects the disc. Nothing shows up on my screen. I have tried it on my iMac, and my Powerbook. Any ideas. Brian

    Thanks Craig, How do I access get in to clean the lense? Brian

  • rockcarver Jan 10, 2008

    I took the entire unit apart until I could find the laser. It looked clean, I wiped it with ear bud and then reassembled and tested it with a CD for a read, and it had the same problem. So now what, is it junk? I hardly has any hours on it at all, though I bought it a few years ago. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Brian

Most DVD drives are also CD drives, and it sounds like the DVD part is broken, you need to replace the DVD drive, this is done simply by buying a new one, I recommend Newegg.com ( if your unsure search exactly what you already have) then opening your case (tower) and just unplugging old one and plugging new one in, it really is very doable for even a novice.

Hello

Check all connections, such as from player to amplifier or receiver and receiver to speaker. Check and clean contacts on RCA jacks and cables and try a different input on the amplifier or receiver.

Clean the lens. Use only a special CD lens cleaner and follow the instructions carefully.

Check the traverse assembly (the metal rod that the laser travels along and the gear that drives it) if CDs aren't recognized or won't play, frequent skipping occurs at random, CDs randomly get stuck in one spot, the player can't find tracks correctly, or cleaning the lens doesn't work. Dust and lint may be interrupting its function.

Have the laser-head assembly checked by a repair person if the traverse assembly seems intact and free of debris.Look for broken plastic parts, such as gears and clips,look for loose or broken internal connections.possibly have gears and belts replaced.

Remove the drive from your computer, and temporarily connect it to another desktop computer.
If it still does not work, then it's time to responsibly recycle it, and spend $40 to purchase a new CD/DVD reader/writer.

Does not recognize any cds


Insert a CD that has writing on the top, noting which way the lettering is facing. Close the drawer. Wait a few seconds. Open the drawer.
If the lettering still is facing the same way, the disk did not "spin".
So, the motor that spins the disk is dead. Replace the CD/DVD unit.

If the disk does spin, then the laser inside the unit has failed. Replace the CD/DVD unit.

Drawer closes by itself


The loading mechanism is off by a tooth or 2. The tray out position switch is not being triggered properly and the tray will reenter the machine. Did this just start happening? It is possible that the sensor switches are defective too. Worse case scenerio is about $5 in parts plus the local labor rate for repair.

the drawer is not seating all the way with the disc, open to make sure nothing is blocking the disc when it slides in.
