[B]IF![/B] you plan on trashing the drive (as it’s out of warranty etc…) and i say [B]IF![/B] carefully take it apart and gently clean the laser lens with rubbing alcohol and a q-tip. Be sure to watch how it comes apart so you can easily put it back together. This is just for last resort only. If you don’t want to mess with it then don’t try it.[/QUOTE]
Well I tried cleaning it and it still did the same thing. It makes a clicking sound as it tried to read the disc. I actually believe the disc isn’t spinning any longer. I could be wrong, but it didn’t work.
I ended up just ordering a new LiteOn iHAP322 from NewEgg. I wanted LightScribe this time, which this unit doesn’t have (I don’t believe), but after reading some quick reviews, it seems like it’s the latest and greatest and might be a bit better than the DH series.
So it should be here next week.
Thanks for all the tips guys.
