If when you insert the disk you hear a whirring and clicking noise, CD spins, and does not read, then that is a problem with the DVD lens.

The DVD lens try to focus on the DVD track, by moving lens pickup and spinning the disk, but cannot read the tracks because the lens is dirty or defective.

Try first cleaning the lens with a DVD cleaner disk. And also if you can see the lens from the outside try blowing some canned air on it.

If this still does not help, then the lens pickup may be faulty, in this case you often replace the whole DVD drive unit inside the DVD player.

I get memory card error when trying access my SD card


do you mean you switched to a NEW sd card or to a DIFFERENT one you had laying around? sometimes if you put a card into a different device, say maybe a laptop, and you don't go to 'safely remove disc' on the computer it will wreck your sd card when you remove it. make sure you try a new card from a package before you do anything else-if that doesn't work your camera has a problem.

IO Device Error


My Maxtor died like this. The disk was OK, it was the electronics that blew. I bought a new empty disk drive box and fitted the disk drive and fixed it. Years later the disk still works in the replacement box and power supply. I got my files and data back with the disk drive in the new box. The size of that disk looks small today. It may be Parallel (PATA) and you need a PATA box, that is harder to find as obsolete. You need to try the disk first in another drive holder.

So PATA and SATA??? Look here and read up about it with pictures too:

An external disk unit has three main parts.
1. The disk drive.
2. The electronics box.
3. The power supply.

Hi Lee,
Your lasers on the way out.
it,s all to do with the power output of the laser head, and the angle for reading the 2 different disk types.
i,d suggest getting a new laser fitted. not too expensive usually with older consoles. Try E-Bay :)

PS2 Console disk read error


You are going to have to get the lens adjusted or get a new one. I would hope just to get it adjusted, because it will be cheaper. Send it to a repair shop and start having fun again. connie
