[quote=geno888;2048717]Welcome to the forum
Because of there are two separate lasers for CD and DVD, it seems that your drive has a damaged CD laser. Is the drive able to read pressed CDs? The best test can be done trying to boot the computer from a CD (for example a Linux live distribution): if you can boot from the CD, then there is something wrong in your operative system (maybe a faulty driver).[/quote]
