Hi,
Is this a Combi-Drive. they read and write CDs but only read DVDs.
Try it on another IDE connector, or change the jumper setting on the back to Master Or Slave.
If you are using Nero or similar, view the drives capabilities, and the formats of read/write that the device supports.

ASUS F3J DVD drive problem


Make sure the new drive is the same size as the old one (physically the same size) and that you swap out the front door as well as the back door screw connector so this way the drive fits in the slot properly.

Can not find the optical pick-ups number


Since the entire drive can be purchased for around $70, it is unlikely that the optics are available or for that matter less than that cost. You will find it less money to replace the drive. The optics are not available as separate components.

Dvd rom not reading discs


did you clean the optical lens? if you do so, then you've got same problem,my suggestion is, you just purchase a new dvd rom drive, because your dvd has optical lens problem. it happened to me a long time ago with my client, what i did i open the laptop then i changed it with a brand new dvd rom drive. If you are going to repair that dvd it is not advisable, it might be back when the same problem.
