Try using a Iris eye cleaning disk. Mosxt times when constant reading occurs or it says no disk it is the iris inside that has become occluded with dirt. Checkl that there are no finger marks on the disk and it is clean too
Once you have run the cleaning disk use a non scratched clean disk to check its load and read ability before trying in the disks that you had trouble with.
If they still give trouble then the problem will be with those disks and not the laser in the unit.
Wet a cotton swab with eyeglass cleaner and GENTLY buff the laser lens ( The little clear unit on the laser pickup/reader. Then dry off with another swab. If you can get a can of "Dust-off" compressed CO2, try a couple sprays of that towards the Disc reader.
Try using a good quality DVD cleaner first. The lens for cd/dvd are different so one may work if the other is dirty. If cleaning does not work then the dvd lens may be out of alignment or broke. With today's prices it is cheaper to replace the drive $30-40 than try to repair it. Hope this helps.
when you say disk did you mean hard disk? if you do... did you recenlty install a new hard disks?... if you did... did you check the jumper-master-slave configuration when installing the new hard disk?
only one hard disk can be configured as master in each ide channel. set up to master (not single) the one on the end of the ide cable and set up to slave the one attached to the midlle of the ide cable.
check that both hard drives are properly attached to the cable and that the power cable is properly seated.
when you say disk did you mean cd rom disks or dvd disks?
does it work in other computers? if it doesnt.. you cd/dvd disks may be the problem
are you trying to read a dvd disk on a cd rom only drive... you can't read a dvd in a cd rom drive.
if you cd/dvd rom drive should read the disk you're putting in, check in device manager if your system detects the cd/dvd rom drive. if it doesn't: check the physical connections (reseat ide cable, check jumper configuration for slave and master on your cd/dvd rom drive and check that the power cable is properly seated), check also in device manager the properties of the cd/dvd rom drive and check if it says on device status if the device is working correctly. if it doesn't post the error code that it may give you or google a solution with error code.
suggestion.. be more specific when posting your questions.. that way it will be easier for a solution to be provided as your issue could be interpreted in different ways
Try using a dvd cleaner on the lens. If that does not work some people use a q-tip with a little rubbing alcohol on it. If niether of those work then the lens is not dirty but broken and will have to be replaced. Any other questionsjust give me a shout.
