You raise a flag. I have often thought dust was the #1 cause of CD/DVD optical drive demise. It just makes sense. The units aren't sealed, and you have fans inside the computer pulling air in through every crack and crevice it can find - over time, dust builds up, and light doesn't penetrate dust. So, my question... Have you found a technique that actually works to clean them? I've tried gently application of air and those cleaning discs, but, I've never had much luck with either.

Computer cases "suck". I built a fan box that sucks air through a HEPA filter and blows it into my case. Positive pressure in the case, no dust anywhere. Try it, you'll like it!

John
