    I bought a set of Imation 1x-4x CD-RW disks recently. However, none of them work in either my CD-RW or CD-Rom drive. You can hear the CD trying to turn, but then I'll just get a "Please insert a CD" error.

    I admit that the two drives are a bit dusty, but every other type of CD/CD-R works fine.

    Are the Imation CD-RW's faulty, or is there something else I should look into? Also, what's the best way to clean my drives?

    Try the media in a different system, that's the easiest way to see if they're good. FWIW, I still have some of those Imation 1x4x CD-RW disks here, and they've worked in any drive I've stuck them in.
