Are you constantly encountering errors while trying to make the Lenovo All-in-One IdeaCentre A600 Optical Disc Drive work? No problem. Here’s the complete guide to help you resolve the problems with your optical disc drive.
Improper use of the slot in optical disc drive installed in IdeaCentre A600 can cause the drive to function abruptly. It can cause issues like – disc cannot be read properly or getting stuck in the slot and so on.
To troubleshoot the optical drive problems, you can refer to the following guidelines:
1. Whenever you find that your optical drive is behaving abnormally, reboot your system. Restarting the Lenovo desktop fixes this issue in most cases.
2. Ensure that the printed side of the disc is facing the screen; if it is placed otherwise, it may not be read properly.
3. Ensure that the disc has been inserted flatly into the drive. If it’s not done in this manner, it is likely that the disc has got stuck in the drive and will not be read properly. Also, the drive may consider the disc to be ejected.
4. Since most optical disc drives come with limited features, it’s quite common for the drives to encounter reading disc problems. Also, slot-in disc drives are more likely to encounter problems than tray-in disc drives. So, if your system has slot-in disc drives, consider replacing it with tray-in drives as it will reduce the chances of encountering problems related to optical disc drives.
5. Ensure that only high quality discs are used; pirated discs are usually thinner than the original ones and thus, they are more likely to encounter problems like getting stuck in the drive and so on.
6. If you find that your optical disc drive is getting read errors on any CD or DVD or degraded sound or audio distortions, it may be due to dirt on the disc or if its surface is scratched. As a fix, clean the disc and the drive or try inserting a different disc before assuming that your drive is at fault.
7. For optical drives and particularly for optical writers, it’s important to keep the firmware updated. If the firmware on your device is outdated, update it immediately. This should resolve the issue you are encountering and provide you better features and support for new brands and optical discs.
