I was trying to copy a few dvd's and the first one did not work while writing. When I took the previously blank dvd out it had a lot of streaks of some type of oily substance on the underside of the dvd. I tried a second movie and when I took the following previously blank dvd out after writing, the movie worked, but had some oily streaks on the top of the dvd. Question: Is my dvd rom crashing or leaking some type of bearing oil or what does anyone think of this problem?

My guess is the circuitry inside has a capacitor leaking
Quite common when they start going bad

Got any three year olds in the house?
You'd be surprised when fits in there :thumbsup:
