Lens cleaning

Do these work best even on DVD players ?

I have a DVD laser lens clearer,, the discs u get at the store, and my Panasonic DVD player refuses a large batch of copied from in-build HD, they previously played ok...

Testing these disks on a Mac DVD with VLC, plays just fine....

The fact thee discs played on previously suggests its not a compatibility issue.

My question is can regular laser lens cleaners also work on DVD players and/or recorders?

To me, there is no proof of specific leans cleaners for specific purposes.. its all to make money. unless there is a better way... AT the end of the day, they all clean the same way.... the lens is physical not different. but i'm wondering if these work at all, or weather i just report to something else.

Does the brush go all the way? I know some only at certain areas meaning you would have to play the disc all the way to clean the lens.
Why do you need to clean it is what I am asking.

Because it wont read discs it could previously play ok. I'm not sure what you mean by "Does the brush go all the way"

Usually these discs have like soft bristles on the lens side so when you play the disc, the lens gets cleaned by the bristles.
I think your problem might be just aging laser emitter.

That's what I was thinking, also.
