[Troubleshoot] DVD / CD Writer Stops Working In Windows

When you use the CD/ DVD writers after long time, there is more probability that it won’t work. Such problems arise when there is dust accumulation on the lens of the optical drive systems. Also many a times, the problem may also be related to the software issues which maybe one of the reasons behind the disk drivers going dysfunctional.



In most cases, using a lens cleaner disk kit will solve the problem which is a disk with a small brush to clean the lens surface. But the problem maybe beyond that.

There can be one more scenario when the DVD writer simply disappears from the computer which can be because of registry problems. You can fix this problem with problem using the tutorial here.
