toshiba dvd rom problems
I have a toshiba dvd rom sd-R1002 which has always worked well for writing and reading. It started to not read cds randomly, but now will not read any. It comes up with the message of please insert disc and then you can hear the drive trying to work, but can not read any cd (either audio or blank). Please help!
Thank you.

Have you tried cleaning the drive?

Yes the cds are in the right way.
The drive will not read a cleaning disc.
Any other ideas.

Is it still under warranty? It sounds borked. I assume it's receiving power from the pc?
