A few months back i got an error while burning a music cd with nero software.since then my drive hasnt been able to read cd's or cd-rom's.it still could read dvd's and dvd-rom's.i tried everything that i knew to solve this but nothing worked.more recently my drive has problems reading dvd's and dvd-rom,often having to have dvd in drive on start up and often failing completely to read it.. what do i do to resolve this as it is very annoying
Difficult to be precise Try removing NERO from the machine and see if the drive seems any better. The alternative to run a drive cleaner to clean the lasers[there are two one DVD one CD] A drive cleaner is like a CD with a little brush and- a small bottle of fluid. any Electrical store has them. If that does not work then it is new drive. It may be cheaper in that case to get an external USB one rather than send the machine away for a OEM replacement.
