It sounds like your CD Rom Driver is not working properly. Check to see if there is no apparent physical damage to either the drive or the disc before and after you try to read the disc. If there is damage get it replaced.

Hope This Helps

Movies not playing


You might want to check if this happens for all DVDs or just one - sometimes scratches on a DVD can cause a computer to be unable to read the disk.

If it is a problem that applies to any disk, check if the disk is seated properly in the drive. Make sure there are no pieces of fluff or dirt that are keeping the disk from being properly seated in the drive.

As a last resort, open your PC and check that the cables running to the DVD drive are connected firmly by unplugging them and plugging them back in. Be sure to unplug your computer from the wall before mucking about with its insides.

Cd drive


Try having your cd drive cleaned. A cd drive could prevent the cd drive to read the disk properly. The drive noise is normal if the speed of your cd drive is high. Here are some links on how to clean a cd drive:

Here is the link for reducing the speed of the disk (if the sound annoys you):
