Another thing you might try that will keep you from having to pull the cover off of your unit is to get a CD cleaning disk at Radio Shack or Wal-Mart or where ever and give that a try. They are fairly cheap (about $3 to $5) and best of all you won't have to remove the cover to use them. They don't do as through a job as a "manual" cleaning but if you cycle them thru about 2 or 3 times there is a chance that they will clean the lazer lens and you will be done. Of course, if that is not the problem then you are still stuck with taking it to a repair professional and probably the first thing they will try is a manual cleaning and then it's on to the more expensive fixes if need be. Good luck!

The only thing you can do I'm afraid is to disassemble the unit, find the lens and clean it off with a cotton swab abd a little alcohol. if this does not work, the spindle motor, or the laser assembly is most likely bad, and this will need to be repaired by a pro. The only problem with that is most of the time, the labor and the parts exceed what a new unit cost most of the time. Good Luck

    It is not a lazer, it is a LASER lens!

Cd software disc will not load on to my computer. Isn't being recognized

If in case the cd was not recognized upon loading it to the computer you may do the following to check wether the cd is faulty or the cd drive.
  1. Verify that the correct disc (CD/DVD) is used when prompted to insert the disc.
  2. For programs on DVD, verify that the drive containing the DVD is a DVD drive and not a CD-ROM drive. Most DVD drives will have DVD printed on the front of the drive. For programs on DVD, consider the following:
  • DVD drives can read both DVD's and CD's.
  • CD-ROM drives can read only CD's.
  1. If multiple disc drives (e.g., CD-ROM and CD-RW, or DVD and DVD-RW, or CD-ROM and DVD-RW, etc.) exist on the computer that can read the disc (refer to the items under Step 2), insert the CD or DVD into the other drive and try the program again.
  2. If you are attempting to install a program and the installation does not begin after inserting the CD/DVD into the proper drive, refer to the program's instructions for the installation procedure.
  3. Clean the CD/DVD in the following manner:
  1. Place a small amount of nonabrasive liquid soap on the shiny side of the CD/DVD.
  2. Using your fingertips and warm water, gently rub the soap on the CD/DVD in a circular motion.
  3. Rinse the CD/DVD thoroughly and dry it using a clean, soft T-shirt or lint-free towel. (Do not use paper towels or tissue paper.)
  1. Try to use a different CD or DVD in the drive to see if that disc can be read.
  2. If possible, insert the problem CD or DVD into the DVD or CD drive of another computer to see if the issue persists.

CD/DVD Is Not Recognized
spacer.gif spacer.gif spacer.gif spacer.gif Many times, after inserting a disc into the CD or DVD drive, the disc is not recognized by that drive. CD-read and DVD-read issues can be caused by many sources. Perform the procedures presented in this General Computer Advice article when troubleshooting CD-read and DVD-read issues.

Begin with the first procedure and continue through the list. Try using the CD or DVD after each procedure is completed. For any procedure that requires changing current system settings, record the original settings before completing the procedure.

HP 530 laptop. Vista Home Basic OS. 18 months old.

the motor went bad in the drive if its not even trying to spin the disc. The only option at this point is to get the drive replaced.

Emerson dvd/cd ewd7002 wont play anything

The first thing to check is the condition of the disc you are trying to load, if it is so very dirty that the laser can't read it, as might be expected from a child's disc, then cleaning it may well resolve the issue.
