I had the same problem with my LiteOn dvd re-writer. It appears to be caused by a worn or slipping drive belt. I found the following link helpful http://www.mmmonkey.co.uk/console/other/360belt.htm
After manually ejecting the tray using a bent paperclip, the drive belt was easily removed, washed in warm soapy water, dried thoroughly and re-attached. Tray opened and closed perfectly. Still looking for a new replacement belt though!
Try to buy a Head-cleaning disk and follow the instructions that comes with it on how to clean the player. Or ask a guide to use the CD lens cleaner. After cleaning try using the drive... If not repeat cleaning process 3x If it fails then the drive needs total replacement.
If you lost the software, you can try contacting LiteOn for a replacement, but you'll probably have to go to your local tech store and buy more software. I recommend Nero or Easy CD/DVD Creator, or get the opinion of someone that works there. Make sure you do NOT open it until you get home and check online that it has the features you need, as you will be unable to return it if you open it.
Here is the link to the manual if you need it;

Please post again if you get no joy from them :)
Go to my computer, right click>properties>hardware tab>device manager, then look down the list for DVD/CDROM Drives, click it and your DVD drive will appear.
Right click on it and delete.
Restart PC and windows will find your DVD drive again and install it.
Try a dvd again and see if it is working, if not it's time to buy a new one i'm afraid, but they are very cheap to replace.
