    i read that if you are getting the dirty disc error a lot and you know it's not the games, then the lens or mirror may be dirty. so i followed the instructions on how to open the dvd drive and clean them, and so then after i put it back together, i got a dirty disc error message right away and it would not even play the disc. i tried many different discs and still got the same. so then i tried opening it back up and cleaning it again, and now it will not even recognize that a disc has been put in. it just sits at the dash. can someone please help?

    well i'd like to be able to fix this one. at least it was working before. i used glass cleaner on a q tip to clean the mirror and lens and canned air. maybe some seeped into the drive? any way i could fix that if that is the problem? i mean, the q tip couldn't have scratched either the lens or mirror could it have?
