Simple DIY Apple Slotted SuperDrive Lens Cleaning (YMMV):
More feedback on Cleaning a Slotted Superdrive that has disc read problems using a wipe over a credit card. (YMMV and lens cleaning won't help if the drive has a hardware/laser failure.) Of course have power off and I assume these were only damp (not dripping wet). Also avoid any with lotion on them that could leave a residue on the lens. And maybe a use a dry (lint-free) one afterwards. I've never tried using 'wipes' personally, but have used the 'dry' cleaning discs with brushes on some drives. Didn't help with one desktop drive that required disassembly and manual lens cleaning with a Q-tip/cleaning solution.
