    If I use my wife's perfume to clean off the dust from the CD/DVD tray will there be any problem?

    I ran out of spirit once...oh and what about using alcohol (booze)? :)

    You can use sprays, but it depends on the alcohol content. Too much of anything is not good. What's the problem you're facing with your DVD writer anyway ?

    Thanks guys,

    No problem. Just wished to know about the spirits that can be used to clean off the dust on the CD tray.

    Don't use any ordinary lence cleaner,which provides some liquides with it. Buy a good lence cleaner with soft brush on the disk to remove the dusts.

    The liquid contains only alcohol[100% pure] will work. Any other mixure such as deo etc. will damage.

    Hi, in also incidently have same writer, and is not working now at all, i used some cd lens cleaner-- chinese make and my writer is screwed up. also try upgrading the firmware version, the default is 1.0a but there is advancement for 1.0b or maybe new one might have come.

    Dont worry its not only your drive, many resellers have told me this version has had serious problems, so the whole series is having the problem.
    Poor Guys all the owners who got defective pieces of this!!!!1 :oops: :(
