CD or DVD cleaning discs: good for burners too?

Can I use a cleaning CD for my DVD burners? Should I use cleaning DVDs only? Are some brands good and some brands bad? Could they render the drive unusable?

Wow, it is strange to see kg_evilboy ignored, hahaha. O_o

I think it is generally not a good idea to use cleaning discs on drive lasers. Manufacturers typically recommend that you don’t. Usually, a few blasts of compressed air will do the job.

Hey, just a gander (and please forgive me if I’m being totally ignorant about this): Does the “kg” in your name happen to stand for Korean/German? And if not … please, just pretend I don’t exist, muhaha. :stuck_out_tongue:

I’ve used a CD Lens Cleaner in my DVD drives before. But I haven’t noticed any difference in terms of readabilty if I’m being completely honest.

I’m looking for DVD only Lens Cleaners myself but they seem to be quite rare. All I can find are the CD Leans Cleaner types.
