[qanda]This thread is about the Memorex 16x16 DVD+/-DLRWN16 D2 External. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]I have an external Memorex 16X duel layer DVD burner. Unfortunately after a very few data disks (maybe 5) it got dirty. I tried using the Maxell lens cleaner disk but to no avail.
Every DVD I have ever tried to copy fails with the error message “DVD burner is dirty” I cannot find any screws on the unit as I’d like to take it apart and clean the lens with a cotton swab and alcohol.
Basically that’s it: my $160 Maxell burner got dirty before I could copy a single DVD, the Lens Cleaners don’t do anything, and now I have to toss it in the trash & spend $200 for a clean unit?
Please help: to try to copy DVD’s I’ve purchased 1-Click DVD-copy pro but it has always failed.
