Probably too late to tell you, but Memorex DL isn’t a good choice for DL media…

How did you try to clean the drive, and to what firmware did you update?

i heard that verbatim was a good brand for burning games. i just took the dvd burner apart just blew a little bit near the leans incase there was any dust i double checked and i hooked every thing back up right but it wont read any disc now

when i try to burn in img burn it says no medium present at the bottom of the screen i think i may have made my dvd worse than it was and i loaded http://us.liteonit.com/us/index.php?option=com_wrapper&Itemid=153
as the firmware

Try a SMALL (!!!) amount of rubbing alcohol [such as the kind used for disinfecting minor cuts, etc] on the end of a Q-tip/cotton swab, and GENTLY wipe the laser lens off with it [being sure to dry the lens completely using only the dry end of the Q-tip] and try again. Also, triple check that you have re-connected every cable; something may have become loose without your notice.

no luck i tried a small amount of rubbing alcohol and dried it but it sounds like its trying to read the disc then makes an odd click and repeats itself for 6 times then stops

If this is with all DVDs–and not just with those Memorex DL discs–you will probably have to get another burner.
