Laptop CD Rom Skipping When Playing Audio

Discussion in 'Computer Information' started by Kentucky Rain, Sep 5, 2004.

  1. Anyone have any idea why my CDROM is developing a tendency to skip much
    more often when playing audio CDs. Any idea? One CD I put in also
    doesn't even get recognised as a CD. Someone said I should get a
    cleaning CD for the heads, do they usually have much success

    It could be that the lens is dirty. CD players don't have "heads" they have
    a laser lens. You can try a cleaning CD. If that doesn't work, then it's
    most likely time to replace the drive. In the case of a laptop, that will
    most likely need to come from the manufacturer.
