Label stuck in dvd drive

I've managed to get a label stuck inside my freecom dvd re writer. there is one screw in the casing but I can't seem to get the outer bits off.

can anyone offer me a step-by-step to recover said label from the drive without damaging it (the drive that is)

It is a freecom dvd rw recorder ls pro double layer with lightscribe.

    ummm... i was an idiot and stuck a sticky label on to the disk before i burned it... it came off as the disk was spinning. not sure where its stuck as i can't see it. there is a single screw in the casing, no more hiding under any labels on the drive.



    here is a pic

What Kind of Label? How did it get stuck inside this Drive?
Has the Label caught on the Bottom or the top of the Drive?
Did you try to write to the Label with the Drive?
If it is a small centre of the disc label and is stuck on the upper steady Hub then the drive to needs to be opened, not just the Drive case but the lid of the actual drive. If there is only one screw in the casing then it may slide or clip together, Check that none of the Labels are hiding Screw holes...(Often Done) Then look for small holes/slots in the side of the Casing where one might slip a thin Blade or Screw driver, this may unclip plastic Side clips... If that fails, send me some pics of the case and I'll see what I can do to sort the Method... Hope this helps. C

How DO i Fix DVD Writer Works As CD ROM Only. Not Detecting any DVD.


There are 2 assemblies inside it.
One works to read/write CD media.
One works to read/write DVD media.
So, your device is "half-broken".
Replace it.

When i put some dvd disk in the drive it does not read but the light in the front just blinks constantly


Is your DVD-writer not recognizing any disk? If it so, the most probable case is that your DVD-writer's Optical Lens has been corrupted. Go for another new DVD-writer or try repairing your DVD-writer.

How to open my MicroSolutions External DVD drives' case, I am interested in using the case for a new internal drive. Thanks!


I can't give you exact information, only generic.

The case comes apart in two halves. A top half, and a bottom half. This is evidenced by the parting line in the middle.
There are screws which should hold the two case halves together.

Generally they are hidden underneath labels. The label, or thin blue plastic cover is peeled back to expose the screw heads.
Screws may have a Philips head, or a Torx head. (Internal star shape)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Torx

After removing the screws it may take an additional force, to 'pop' the two case halves apart.

How to take out a sticker stuck inside the burner?


Open the computer case, disconnect the power and data cables from the drive and remove it from the case. How you do this will depend on the type of case your computer has. There may be screws on both sides of the drive, one side only, or no screws in a tool-less case where there will be some kind of release tabs so you can slide the drive out.

Once you have the drive out of the computer, there are four screws in the bottom that hold the drive together. Take those out, take off the top cover and you'll be able to get at whatever's stuck in the drive. Just be careful if the sticker is near the laser lens. If you poke too hard the pickup assembly can be damaged and you'll be replacing the drive.

In fact, with new drives only around $30, it might be easier and just as cost-effective simply to replace it right off.

My USB Sony- dvd writer (enclosed in casing) has stopped reading


Try using a can of compressed air with the tube on the end. Open the disk tray and spray the compressed air liberally inside the drive area, sweeping the tube from side to side. If this does not fix the problem and you feel comfortable with removing the drive and removing the top cover, you can try cleaning the optic lense inside (very gently) with a cotton swab and some rubbing alcohol.

My LG GH-22LP20 Super Multi DVD Rewriter cannot read anymore DVDs. It can only read CDs. How do I solve this? Help!


It's "dying" -- replace it. If it is an "external" casing, with an "internal" DVD-writer inside, you could open the casing, remove the "dead" drive, buy a new drive, and install it into the case.

My LH20A1p186c Lite on dvd writer will not do anything. A simple swap into my comp with 3 cables and the comp. does not recognize the new hardware. In fact both dvd and old cd player appear tp be one...


Check the Master Slave jumper on the back of the drives. If using 2 drives on 1 cable, make sure one is set to master and the other is set to slave. The jumper positions usually are labeled on the top of the drive as "M" and "S"

If you have them set to the same, both drives won't work.

If the drive is sharing cable with a hard drive, try changing the M/S setting.
