    Default CD Drive help needed!

    Hi All,

    Anyone know why my laptop will play DVDs but will not play or read CDs? I've just bought a sexy little MP3 player but all is lost till I can get this bl**dy machine to read a CD

    Why aren't there any smilies taking a rightous hammer to a sh*tty computer?!

    This will have to do(imagine your own computer)

    Will it read anything? does it even try to read anything or does it just sit there?

    If it is trying to read something but doesn't get through then use a CD Lense cleaner, if not it sounds like your drive might be bust, the cheaper thing to do is pick up a USB drive if you don't want to fort out for a new drive plus fitting which can be expensive for laptop work. The drive uses 2 different lasers to read the different disk types.

    Also if it is a pop drive then they can get knocked quite easily and the lense can be disalined quite easily...

    Other than that mate I'm not too sure, I'd have to have a look at it first...
