    This is what is called as last stage...If it stopped reading the CD then remember that lens in the drive ha slost is memory where it finds/search Data, its just same that a person is having eyes clear and sharp but cannot see.... So its just wastage of time and money to buy lens cleaner and other products...Just do one thing..open the drive and check the lens if its blue in colour then it still have some life and if its white then just replace the lens of same model number or better get Scrab writer(which is one of the Best DVD Writer and a double layer Writer)...

    Go to Radio Shack and buy a CD lens cleaner disc. Seems the lens on your player is dusty and just needs to be cleaned.

    It's cheap and easy.

    Source(s): that's what I did for mine.

    previous poster is stable; those video games are DVD format and you have a CDcontinual. that's the only subject that ought to be incorrect...the priority you're explaining isn't by using fact of an Autorun malfunction reason yourcontinual nonetheless reads some disks promptly.
