    I have two stand alone cd recorder/burners.

    The burner units you cannot take apart really...they are a fully enclosed unit.

    As far as cleaning the sensor eye in them....what do you recommend.....?

    Too hard to get in there with an alcohol swab.

    Heard some of those discs with the built-in brushes, especially the cheaper ones, aren't all that great and maybe some of the brush hairs will fly off and become lodged in there.........

    What do you do?

    Never had to clean one. Are really having a problem?

    If you have a full data disk put it in and copy it to your hard drive.
    When it gets to the end, near the outside, it will be running at it's maximum speed and blow it's own dust off.

    Just had a couple of problems lately....

    Can't tell if it's the cd's...or cd player....or amp.(Stereo 2- channel)

    Upgraded my speakers recently. (New)....

    Cd players were always good before.......

    Just lately I seem to be getting a not-so-great sound in the mid ranges when I play cd's....

    Amp is pretty old though....

    Listening to radio on it sounds o.k......
