Yes, I just burnt the CD on another computer. And after the burning, it showed the files on the other computer. When I did put the CD in my computer, it saw as blank.

Yes. The thing is it is able to write *, but not read.


* I can write to the DVD, but it won't read. I put the same DVD on the other computer, and it sees the files, so no writing problem.

There's simply something wrong with the read laser or logic. It uses another laser light and logic for writing as far as I know

I think that's right. A strong laser for writing and a weaker one for reading.

Do you think any DVD Cleaners that Computer Stores sell will be any help at all?

I don't know, but don't think so based on only a little experience. I've seen them help a little when there are read errors. Not too confident that it would help for a drive that seems to read absolutely nothing.

The thing is it read a DVD Movie a couple days ago, or yesterday. So, it does seem to read manufactured DVDs, but not burnt ones. That is strange. I will get new CDs/DVDs to burn and I will try to see it reads those, which I am not much hopeful, but will do to see the result.

I don't remember if you've referred to this earlier in the thread (it's getting to be a long one), but have you tried anything related to removing upper and lower class filters?

It relates to, at least in part, what I asked earlier in the thread:

Quote:
Try and identify between what always works vs. what never works regarding CDs, DVDs, etc., and burned vs. manufactured.

Wow! Damn! I haven't even thought of that! I remember doing it on another computer years ago, but I don't remember how now. Can you explain how to do it please?
