LG HL-DT-ST DVDRAM T10N ATA DRIVE

I have an LG HL-DT-ST DVDRAM T10N ATA DRIVE

The problem is whenever I put in a CD, the drive attempts to read the disc, But then stops. Whenever I try to run the drive, it says it's empty. I've had the DVD drive since september 2007, and the last time a CD worked was probably a month ago, it is so stressing.

This only happens to CDs. I've tried everything - blank CD-Rs and blank CD-RWs, audio CDs, software CDs such as Nero and Photoshop, and none of them work.

However, DVDs work perfectly fine. I can play DVDs and watch movies, put in blank DVD-Rs and burn data, and it all works.

I've tried remounting the drive to make sure no screws were loose, and nothing changed.

So I'm wondering if it's a defective DVD drive or if it's some kind of virus? Anyone know?

All tips and advice are appreciated. Thanks

Various issues can cause drives to occasionally balk at writing optical discs. These run the gamut of physical, hardware, and software troubles.

Inappropriate or dirty media may be to blame. Make sure to match the type of recordable disc to the drive, and check each disc for fingerprints or other contaminants. If a disc is dirty, wipe it with a clean, soft cloth in a straight line from the center hole outward. Try a quality optical drive cleaning disc if you suspect dust contamination on the drive’s laser lens.

Some discs don’t perform well with certain drives, even within their rated speeds. Try recording at a slower speed and then with a different brand of disc. Also, on PCs, verify that the temporary file storage area on the hard drive used by the burning software has enough free, defragmented space. Allocate at least 5GB for a DVD (9GB for a double-layer [DL] disc) and about 1GB for CD burning.
