You could clean it if you like al you will have to clean is the lens. but if push come to shove that you will need to buy a new drive for you 360, do so, so far these types of drives and been discovered to be used in a 360:
Hitachi, Samsung, and BenQ
order anyone of these drives according the type of drive associated in your xbox. Once you have done that it is absolutely necessary that you do change the new interface board for the previous one that was on the Xbox 360 to keep it from throwing it into confusion. This is done by the disassembly and reassembly of your drive. Once all that is done. Put it back into you 360 plug it all back together and you're good to go!

My dvd player shows disk error when I am trying to watch a dvd. I opened it up to clean the lens on the laser and noticed that when I loaded the disk into the player it was not spinning. It does however...

If you have opened it up once then you can go ahead and open it again and power it up without a disc in it. You should see the laser beam light up and the laser move back and forward looking for the disc and the wheel spin and stutter as it looks for the disc. If you can't see the beam then its probably one of two things. The laser diode has burned out or the ribbon cable into the laser is out or not fully in the connector. IF you do see the laser beam then its most likely you have a dirty or broken drive band, (Black elastic band). Clean it or replace if broken. The last solution would be to replace the drive motor but Id doubt you will have to go that far.

Yes this is the sensors on the back of the drive overheating to fix it you will need to send it in or use a good guide to fix it.

The disc won't spin

Hi, It could be one of 2 things, either your laser is on its way out or the motor in the dvd drive has run out of lubricant. The latter is quite obvious as the drive will be noisy when spinning!!!, if ur tech savvy and are capable of doing so, remove the drive from the xbox and open up the drive casing, the motor is situated under where the disc sits on the little black disc.
There are 3 screws holding the motor in place, remove them and with gentle pressure pull the black section from the motor, clean thoroughly then place a couple of drops of wd40 or three in one oil onto the shaft. Re-assemble and that should fix your problem.

MacBook pro 08 idvd will not burn to blank -R dvd

Go click on the apple logo at the top left of the screen. Then click on About this mac. Then click on More info. Then click on Disc Burning.

It will tell you what DVDs the optical drive will burn. If no info shows up, then you got a bad connection or need to clean the optical drive laser lens or your optical drive is about dead so you may have to buy a new optical drive.

Every time i ty to burn a cd i get an error message saying slow down recording speed or try another brand of disc i have done this but i still get the same message

Get a CD laser cleaning kit and clean the laser. If this does not work I strongly suspect the laser is going weak and can no longer properly burn in to the disks. I doubt it is a software fault. The fix is to change the drive to prove that the drive's laser is actualy going bad.

Ilo-DVDR04 recorder problems

The laser is either dirty or is starting to go.These lasers in this model usually only last two years.To clean but a commercial disc cleaner philips or Maxell work good in this model.Put a drop of rubbing alcohol on brushes this helps clean laser.I would do this every 15 hours of use .The best way to clean laser is to rub gently with a Qtip soaked in rubbing alcohol but this requires some technical knowledge for you have to open burner.If you attempt this make certain electrical plug is pulled lasers cause nasty burns.
If laser is going you can replace the burner/loader unit,this model uses a 411s or 451s Liteon burner.The 401s and 813s will also work without problem.
