DVD drive problem


spec

Likes # 0

When I load a DVD disc the drive just makes a 'ticking' noise and won't show the content of the disc? I've tried uninstalling it and cleaning the discs also but to no avail. Any ideas please?

Thanks in advance

Have you tried several discs or is it just down to one particular disc?

There's something here about "ticking" DVD drive enter link description herebut in your case it appears that the drive may have/be failing if it is not showing the contents of the disc - ie:faulty or failed laser.

Can you try the DVD disks in another machine?, If they work OK there the fault is with your DVD player. Terry
