I loaded a DVD sometime back and it just locked in without mounting. Drutil eject cleared the disk from the drive. Later, compressed air was used and the disk would spin then silence then spin and silence a 1/2 dozen times or so. The drive would eventually time out and eject the disk on it's own. It was a small improvement. I next got a Memorex optidisc with 6 little brushes for an attempted lens cleaning but no change. My hunch is it's a lens/read issue. Does anybody know of anything else to try? The drive never had much use and has always been in a clean area.
