Question about H45 Quick DVD External DVD Drive
I have had my drive for years and it is very picky now with blank dvds most of the time it does not even recognize that the dvd in the drive is blank. I'll put a disc in and go to burn a dvd and get the message please insert a blank dvd. I have over a dozen dvds that are now only good for "frizbies" my burner messed up. Nero gives a write disk-9 error and so does clone DVD. Roxio I have the most success with but this last time I received this new error at 99% burn, it only had 1% left to go!!!! It stopped and said tracking servo error, I looked this up and it seems to be saying I need to realign my drive. Since I know nothing about that, and my drive is old, and may need to be replaced. (By the way cds seems to be no problem so far.) I was wondering if I could repair this or replace the drive it self with a new internal drive in the old external dvd case maybe? I haven't much money or experience and would like the easiest and cheapest way for me, buying a whole new external dvd drive right now is too pricey for me. Thanks Wade
Yes I have apparently it does need to be changed, the disk cleaner did not help it at all. But thanks for the suggestion.

Hi, have you tried one of those cleaning disks for DVD drives? It might help to clean the laser lens and not to be so picky, otherwise like all lens based drives it needs to be changed in some time anyway. Robert
