How to clean BENQ CD-RW?



My relatively old (3+ years) BENQ CD-RW stopped reading and writing.
I don’t know the exact model (it’s 48x16x48).
Maybe cleaning it will help (any suggestions/diagnostics are welcomed).
What’s the best way do do it ?


You didn’t say what country you’re in.
If the USA, you can pick up a laser cleaning disc
at your local Wal-Mart, or other electronics store.
Just follow the instructions.
Most work on CD and DVD players \ drives.
