my cd burner can't read discs but can still burn - is it a cleaning issue and if so what would be the best way to clean it?

Considering the cost of DVD Writers (Average 25 to 40$) I would strongly recommend buying a new one.

I have already seen some cleaning cd but I have never seen it make a difference.
It is normal for an Optical Drive to die after a few years... some brands live longer then others but it really comes down to how much has it been used or if you put in CD's with a Label on it... (That would be real bad)
