    Drive reads DVD format as well as game-program disks fine, but blanks and audios are no longer recognized, read something about CD-IR diode on another site but am unsure how this helps? Updating drivers and rolling back to older drivers had zero effect, opened the case, all connections are good...can anyone help?

I would suggest cleaning the drive with a cleaning dvd, $19.99 at most retailers. Or you can open up your computer and verify all connections to the drive are good, disconnect and re-connect to be sure. Hope this helps.
