Re: disc drive problems

I also had that type of problem, as i continued to wonder as why this is happening, ive noticed that the lens was dirty and it had little scratches already.

thats was the reason it couldnt read anymore. sad to say you are also having this problem.

but why not try cleaning it with lens cleaner first. you still do that.

hope this helps you.
