are you having strong exhaust in ur system? as normally optical drives shows problem, as if ur system has faster exhaust at back, and either NO or slower fans at front. this creates a suction inside the casing. then AIr tries getting inside from everywhere. and sometimes passed through the optical drives as well. and the dirt is KILLER.

try cleaning it with CD based clearners, else get it replaced. and not to worry as if this is 5 months old my Sont CD-RW died in just 3 months just because of this suction thingi i told. after that, I keep one front slot open, and as well used a slower and quieter 120MM fan at back.

So I could just go down to my local computer store and ask for a CD Rom that can clean my cd drive?

yes, but as u dont have already the cleaning kit (whihc i assumed u had), i'll advice better to get the DVD replaced.

as if there is some other problem, and using the cleaner didnt showed up results, u'll end up scolding me for that extra bucks i made u to spend buying the cleaning kit.
