DVD drive problem in 3000H

2008-05-13, 13:27 PM
My Lenovo model is 3000H100-8823-4AQ.
Recently the DVD-RW drive is not reading DVD's. The drive is able to read VCD or any audio CD.
Please suggest remedy. What is the recommended procedure for cleaning the DVD drive?

open the desktop up and unplug the drive and then plug it back and try a reinstall. Also cleanning the lens might do... Install a DVD player (software) first to make sure it plays...  PowerDVD or WinDVD...etc.

Hello, First do you have any DVD player software line PowerDVD or WinDVD?  and tried to play a dvd with those players or even Microsoft Media Player?
 
Second I would unplug the Drive then plug it in after a reboot to see if   1) is seen by bios first then   2) if the OS tries to reinstall the new drive...
 
third the DVD cleaner  us usually a dvd with tiny brushes on the insides at different places to spin past the lense to clean and you can add lens cleaner to the brushes to help aid cleanning.
 
all else fails order a new drive.
