    You could always try a lense cleaner.

    Other than that possibly the lense might be out of alignment. Dunno how to fix that tho without going to a professional.

    Just get yourself another DVD drive, its one of the cheapest items in the machine these days.

    Only about £15 or less from www.scan.co.uk or www.overclockers.co.uk

    Make sure you order correct type. ie. Ide or Sata.
