Is the problem with all DVD media - burned, blank and commercial discs?

Any chance you can try the drive on another PC?

This is problem is with all dvds

Well there are 2 different lasers…one for CD’s and one for DVD’s.

If you can confirm (dead on DVD laser) it would be nice if you could try it in another pc.
