Hi lagsbartt,

I am pleased you got it working.

I suggested you try that several days ago see post 11 on your other thread , but it seems you were too stressed to pick up the suggestion.

The DVD lens focuses the laser for CD or DVD as different wavelengths are required for each.

Sometimes that is faulty and one type of media can be read//written.

It is probably time to get a new Dvd Drive.

He can't because the cd's won't boot. Only the 7 dvd boots.

Sounds like there is something wrong with the laser that reads cd's.

I suggested on the other thread he burn his repair tools to dvd instead - see if that boots.

As far as I can tell, it was ignored.
Yep, there it is! I read that too... 2nd time lucky I guess
