    DVD Drive playing up....

    Ok i have the ASUS DRW-2014L1T ATA DVD burner/drive.
    It seems to be playing up on reading data dvd's. What happens is that when i insert a data dvd it will only read it about 40% of the time, when it wont work i can still go into that dvd drive, and it says drag items here.. (running vista.)
    Disc works fine on other computer..
    Any suggestions?

    Cheers, Matt

    Cd/Dvd drives are dust magnets since your pc pulls air from the front of the pc....Get a can of compressed air and or a drive cleaning kit.

    Put a couple specs of dust in one eyeball and see (pardon the pun) if you can still see across the room

    Lol fine,
    Ok about 2 months ago a DVD was crunched in this dvd drive as this dvd was really old and crappy quality.. So it shattered all in the dvd drive.. i opened it up and took it all out and it seemed to worked fine for those 2 months...

    OTHER CAUSE:

    Ok stupidly i was tired and thought i could just copy a crack for a game onto the dvd (Drag and drop..lol) and it has happened ever since this... I got rid of the crack and its still happening..

    Cheers, Matt
