First off I’d like to apologize for posting this issue again. I do this since the last relevant post was addressed two years ago and contains no practical solution.
My CD/DVD writer was purchased about two years ago and it started this problem recently (a month ago perhaps).
The first problem is that it can’t read any CD media (empty, burnt or factory original). DVD media is running quite alright.
The second one is that nero splurts out “Focus\Tracking error” at about the end of every burning session (about at 90%). When loading the burnt dvd it works fine.
On the threads I have read everyone says to return the burner to the factory and get a new one using their warrenty (thread here ). I’m out of warrenty and can’t afford to buy a new burner, the only way around it seems to be trying the greasing solution. As i’m not quite of a technical person I’m afraid I’ll screw something up.
Is there any way around it, or is it a fatal situation?
I’d really appreciate a reply.
