Fixing MacBookPro Superdrive

I have purchased my MacBookPro in October 2007, after 6 months my optical drive was so picky in reading or writing DVDs and CDs, and after few months, it was able to read originals only.

I tried everything from updating the firmware or flashing it to restore its original firmware, but no luck, until yesterday when i had to format and install the OS from scratch, but to my surprise it wasn’t able to read the Original MacOS DVD.

I Googled once again about the cuase of this, and found some results referring to cleaning the lens,

I followed this tutorial to disassmble the laptop :
