Hey my Dell Vostro 1510 Slot Optical Drive doesnt recognize DVDs and CDs. Tried deleting my Upper and Lower filters in the registry but that didn't work. i work in a dusty enviroment and was wondering whether that could be the cause and if it is the cause what can i do to clean the lens in the slot optical drive.

well dusty environment could be the cause, as far as cleaning it, I have not heard of any methods, plus this is a delicate piece of hardware that you'd need to disassemble.

I think it would be cheaper/faster if you just buy a replacement
