    no way putting a DVD in a cdrom wont at all ruin it
    it wont just read the dvd it will keep spinning in the drive
    methinks this is some other problem
    try cleaning up the lens with those cd lens cleaner
    if under warranty take it to your service center
    cause i dont think the DVD u put in is the culpurit

    You put up DVD drive into the Cd rom drive means you either accidently put the DVD into Cd really or somewhere you had hope it will be read by Cd rom or may be the curiosity got the better of you !!!!! :D
    Anyway if you have acces to the DVd Cd isnt Getting your Cd rom damaged the best reason to upgrae to the DVD rom .....Drive :p

    Is your drive being detected in Windows at all?

    Can you operate the drive in other OSes ?

    if u have the technical hand..... u can try to open it up yourself.... clean it using an optical lense cleaner(the 1 used to clean your eye glasses)NEVER USE THINNER, or any orher Harsh solvents.

    btw i never cleaned my cd rom with a lense cleaner disc.

    You can clean it using an audio CD cleaner. It doesn't need any media player or anything. It will play automatically. If that doesn't work

    ...

    I have another solution ... You can have my ASUS 52xCDROM drive for just Rs500/- . I just went DVD.
