DVD Rom not reading

  Jai 17:55 10 Mar 2005

The kids have struck again (I think they ejected during a read). The dvd is listed in windows explorer & in device mgr. but won't read. I have tried the following:-
Shut down / turn on;
Go to device mgr & uninstall the drive, & restart;
Delete the device & use Add new hardware;
Safe Mode & system restore;
The only option left is to disconnect completely
& try again unless I have missed something.
Anyone any ideas?

Try cleaning the lens using a standard DVD cleaning kit.

In the end bought a new one.
