    i dont think so,cos every time i put the same cd ov dvd it says insert media.its surely not bcos of dust.......i think it has something to do with the way the cd or dvd was burned!

    my "Sony DVD RW AW-G170A" drive had this kinda problem. I was unable to play movie dvds.

    I modified the firmware to "Optiarc AD-7170A 1.04 BT" with Binflash utility and its permanently fixed now :D
