My drive has been giving me some problems recently which now appear to have
fixed themselves but I fear it's reaching the end of it's life. I thought a
bit of maintenance might help prolong it's life.
The obvious thing is cleaning the lens. Does anyone have any recomendations
on the best method?
I'm never too sure about these cleaning discs (with brushes on the
underside) as I worry that a fast spinning brush might scratch the lens but
the alternative of opening the drive up might just allow more dust to get
inside. Any advice appreciated?
I've heard mentions of lubricating the rails, is this just necessary on some
models or is it valid as a general maintenance tip? If so, how do I go about
doing it (what sort of lubricant etc)?
Does anyone have any other maintenance tips?
