I have problem with my dvd writer it cant read anything on dvd or cd .It is recognised by bios it is shown in as D drive , dvd and cd is also spins but there is nothing to display . I tried every trick I came across on forums but no result. I want to tell you that when I connect LGs writer it perfactly works. Then I connect my writer to my friends computer ,same problem .Can anyone find solution for this problem? Is my writer dead of it can be repaired?Please help me as I am not a technocrat but ordinary computer user. Thanks in advance
Yeah, most likely the drive is dead. You can try a lens cleaner usually i'll just blow out any dust that might be inside the drive with an air can (be very careful as air cans can blow out more then just air if used improperly). Drives that are under heavy use usually go out prematurely so keep that in mind. Don't throw out the drive, i suggest bringing it to an electronics recycle center. You may or may not get some money for it but parts can be reused or could be broken down to it's natural state for something else.
THANKS FOR ANSWERING ACTUALLY I DID CLEANING STUFF BUT IN VAIN. ANY WAYS THANKS TO BOTH OF YOU . I WILL TRY TO BUY NEW ONE. AS YOU SUGGEST IT MUST BE RECYCLE . THAT IS THE MAIN REASON I WANT TO GIVE IT A TRY. BUT EVERY EFFORT OF DOING SEEMS TO VAIN. ALAS IT COULD BE REPAIRED. THANK YOU VERY MUCH.
