Windows 7: Audio disks appear blank


25 Aug 2012   #1

MS Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit SP1
 
 
Audio disks appear blank

When I insert a audio disk windows says the disk is empty this happens 75% of the time

But the disk works on cd players

Two possibilities:
  • Dust and hair inside the drive. Clean out with a can of compressed air.
  • Failing/misaligned laser head. Drive replacement is usually the best solution.

Is it safe to use compressed air on a laptop disk drive?

  • Green = Not Read
  • Red = Read but was empty
  • Blue = Read with data on.
