i have an orginal sony dvd rom-drive and its barely been a month since i have got it.. now the same problem has happened which happens everytime your dvd/cd drive gets a little old.. if a cd has even a lil scratch on it.. the dvd wont play it.. you need a brand new scratchless cd for the drive to play because it will reject all others and the dvd program will play the movie by jumps and starts..... does anybody know how i can improve on this .. or if maybe i can change the drive lens for a dvd player lens .. will that improve the reading capability or will it work??... i have rented 10 of the latest movies and i cant see even one of them.. help!!

Sound like you have a defective player. Since it's only a month old, whey not exchange it for another one?

Sadly no. CD/DVD-ROM drive failure is very common. There pretty complicated components, made very inexpensively, and have a lot of moving parts. All of which add up to a pretty high failure rate.
