he probably just set the resistance too low and burned out the laser.

my thompson would not read anything, only dvd-r +r and those would give dde after a few hours of play ( except for verbatim datalifeplus dvd's) , i had a resistance of about 2600 ohms before tweaking the thompson, i tweaked it down to 1300, It will now read sony cd/rw, memorex cd/rw and plays memorex and tdk dvd's fine, but it still does not read cdr's
