A friend of mine cleaned some of his computer with this computer part cleaner spray stuff. Not realy sure what its called but he used it inside his cd and dvd drives and now they do not work. I think it may have gotten the lense dirty or something to that effect so any advice on fixing it would be appreciated. ie. What to clean them with, or if something else may be wrong with the drives. The Drives won't even read cleaner cds so i can't use those to clean it with.

Hello, and welcome to the forum....The only thing you should ever use is a canned air spray (gently), which you can pick up just about everywhere.....compusa, fryes, microcenter etc. If your friend used some other type of spray, allow the units time to evaporate whatever was sprayed in there and cross your fingers. It is never advisable to use a cdrom lense cleaner disk or any such device as they can severly scratch or damage the device, best way to keep everything tip top is to keep the cd's clean before you put them in
