The laser sensor is caked in dust - try to clean it with a can of compressed air and a q-tip. If that fails then you will have to replace the dvd unit - it will cost you around $60.

It could be that the driver have to be upgraded, or else it could be that Cd might be corupted from where virus or worm could be getting installed into system.And if this happens with all the Cd.s then it could be the dirt stuck in the drive which needs to be cleaned, can get it done from any computer any repair center.

CDRW/DVD Rom combo drive only reads CD's


the blue you are refering to is the dye on the disc, sometimes it's purple, normally the darker the better, but it's down to the individual writer and what disc it is compatable with, but your writers problem is all too common, as in my opionion the lasers that are being fitted in writers are of poorer quality than in the earlier days to enable the prices to become lower. You can try one thing, but it doesnt always work; go to my computer>right click>hardware tab>device manager, then down list to cd/dvd drives and click '+' sign and highlight your writer, right click on it and select uninstall. Restart PC and it will be automatically re installed, try again and if no change you will need to replace the drive as they are cheaper nowadays

NEC-3520A Suddenly stop to burn correctly, but reads OK


Have you tried lowering the burn/erase speed? To begin, simply do what you need to do on the lowest speed, and then keep increasing until it gives the error again. This will most likely work. I had this problem and I burn now CDs at 16x.
