My internal DVD, Freecom ND1300A, doesen't see DVDs anymore. It sees and plays audio CDs but won't even recognise a DVD. When a DVD is inserted, when the drive is explored, it comes back with the message 'no disk inserted'.
Can this be fixed or should I trash it?

Does this happen on all DVDs and CDs or only on some DVDs?
If this is happens on all DVDs then this drive is faulty and needs to be replaced.
If it only occurs on some DVDs then check the region code on the DVD
player and the region code on the DVD, the region codes must match.
To play DVDs from any region the player needs to be a region free player
or you need to install a region free program on your notebook/computer.

Please note that the formats of DVD and CD are quite different. Whereas a DVD drive can handle both DVD and CD, a CD drive can only handle cd formats. Furthermore, a drive that reads both formats does not necessarily mean it can handle the writing aspect ok. You need a drive that is capable of writing/burning DVD. Most drives that come along with pcs can only write CDs but able to read both. So check your drive to see whether or not it can write on DVDs ok. Good luck
