The first thing you shouldnt do is to open the Drive !
If you open it and clean the lens.. That is BAD NEWS buddy.
You can open it, BUT DO NOT TOUCH THE LENS OR CLEAN THE LENS. Because the lens is very super sensative. Our hands has oil which is hard to notice.

I need to know what type of dvd drive you have...

Here are some tips which you can try :

a) There can be a problem with OS you are using. Try differnet ones.
b) There can be a volt powering problem with your power supply to your DVD combo Drive.
c) You might not have the installation drivers for your dvd drive, install them,
you can find the drivers in the DVD webpage.

My pen drive is not detected.

The best thing to do is to try it in a friends computer, remember to scan it with an anti-virus program if it is detected. Otherwise it is possible that the USB flash drive has malfunctioned or needs to be reformatted. Hand it over to a PC technician maybe he/she can recover the information on it. Might be time to purchase a new one as they do wear out.

Just bought a sandisk 8gb microsd hc, but pc cannot detect

pen drives are very fragile HWs and bound to behave funny sometimes...if u have critical data in them u may be lost for ever sometimes.....
only a low level format or a windows simple format can revive it back....even i as an expert have faced issues with my 8 GB kingston pen drive many i have moved to using 4.7GB DVD RW disk media (DVD RW disk costs just a few $)....and they r re-usable/erasable/re-writable....and most of the PCs have a DVD drive now a days.....also resistance to any virus being writen on them from another infected system....but a pen drive can get infected with a virus, by just connecting it to the USB port....

Samsung portable dvd player

those kinda players wont play DVD rom disks and certain ones that are made up. DVD-RAM or ROM wont work. Try blowing inside the player for any dust. if it still doesnt work its the maufacters problem. The player will play CD-G audio only, not graphics The ability to play back DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+R, DVD+RW, CD-R, CD-RW, and CD-Jpeg discs may depend on recording conditions.
