    If you have had the drive for a while it could be the drive is failing and may need to be replaced. You could try a DVD lens cleaner like this - http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/controller/home?O=&sku=510293&is=REG&Q=&A=details - and see if that helps.

    You're welcome. I hope you get it worked out to your satisfaction.
  6. If it can read commercial CD's/DVD's, but not writeable CD's/DVD's, this usually indicates the drive has failed and needs replaced.
