Pioneer 111D reads CDs but not DVDs?

Hi all.

My drive is about 2 months old, it was working great until I installed a program called cyberlink power dvd, after that my drive just suddently stopped reading DVDs but CD’s read fine.

I uninstalled the software, and my dvd drive but no luck.

Another thing that i think could be wrong is, the last DVD disc i put in seemed to be dirty (it had a bit of that plastic sticky stuff on it, the stuff you find CD’s stuck to on magazines.) But if a dirty lens were the case, my CD’s wouldnt be able to read either right?

any solutions? thanks

Clean the drive.

Uninstall the ide channels and restart.

clean with what?

With a dvd cleaner disc maybe.
