CD Drive problem

Hi, this might be a stupid thing to be asking about, but the disc drive on my laptop will play dvd’s fine but not cd’s. I’ve tried loads of cd’s, so its not an error with one, and i was just wondering if there is anything i can do to try and fix it? Thanks

Hi [B]Alison3[/B] and welcome to CD Freaks :slight_smile:

It could either be that the CD lens of the drive is dirty, or that it’s dead. If it’s not a slot-loading drive then you could look and see whether there’s any muck on the lens, or give it a blast with some canned air. Unfortunately if the lens is dead, then you’ll have to replace the whole drive even though the DVD lens is still apparently working.

How old is the laptop?
