Dvd burner not burning
When you get no disk error, that is usually because of a problem with the
optical laser lens that is dirty, faulty or opaque, and will start
operating on certain disks better than others.
In that case you will hear disk spinning, whirring and clicking, but
the TOC (table of content track at start of CD/DVD will not be read,
therefore the error.
Whe this problem is starting you may be able to read only CD, DVD, or for example only DVD-R and not +R , or only to read and
not to write and so on. After more prolonged usage , often the unit goes losing the rest of functions, and ends up not reading anything at all.
If instead there is no noise, and disk does not spin at all , then there is a faulty motor, or the motor micro-switch is bad. This situation is far less common than the lens problem.
Try first using a CD/DVD cleaner disk to clean the lens. If that does
not work you will need to disassemble the drive , and clean lens
directly with q tips and isopropyl alcohol, or to replace the CD/DVD RW drive unit.
