    1) Try running a DVD/CD cleaning disk (Maxell, about $10 US) on your drive

    2) If the drive has dual lasers, chances are the DVD laser is out of alignment - it'll cost you less to buy a new drive than to have your present one repaired...

    i had the same thing happen to me, too... the drive would only read cds (music and date)...it's a sad state of affairs 'these days' when replacing is cheaper than repairing...

    That happened to mine.. just bought a new drive. You can get a burner for like $50, a Samsung one (www.microcenter.com - search around) that works great (for me). My DL DVD-ROM drive would read normal DVDs but not dual layer. The burner works great for me, and it is cheap!
