Question about Dell Dimension 3000 PC Desktop

1 Answer

Dell Dimension 3000 desktop with Samsung SH-S182M DVD/CD-RW often fails to read disk in drive. Usually occurs with a data disk that has previously been written by the same drive. Almost always reads disk from other sources. Repated attempts sometimes results in drive reading disk. Is this an indiction the drive is going bad, or problem with partidular disks, or other?

    Thanks for the prompt and helpful comment. I had tried cleaning the laser previously with what seemed some minimal improvement. Any suggestions for how best to clean the laser to resolve this problem?

The drive's laser lens is dirty, try to clean it. If that fails to have an effect then the dirt has already been burned on the lens, unfixable, replace the dvd unit.

    You will have to dismantle the Samsung to access the lens. Use a q-tip to finely wipe the lens and a can of compressed air to blow all the dust from where the q-tip can't reach - especially under the lens.
