Try update driver, firmware. if it doesn't work, your drive physically has a problem. I got a matsushita dvd ram, after 2 years, it stuff up. So if yours also does not work after updating, check for warranty.

Is the 'D' drive the cd/dvd drive? If so, try cds or dvds of different types to see what works. Some cd units won't read a dvd. A little light should come on if the drive is trying to read. No light, drive is dead.
With Windows XP and above and most DVD players today users do have the option to change their DVD region scheme a few times (often no more than four times). To adjust the region in Windows follow the below steps.
Click Start, Settings, and open Control Panel
Double-click the System icon.
In the System Properties click the Hardware tab.
In Hardware click the Device Manager button.
In Device Manager click the "+" symbol next to the DVD/CD-ROM drives icon.
This should expand and display each of the drives installed in your computer. Double-click the DVD drive you wish to change the region for.
In the Properties window click the DVD Region tab.
Within this window you should be able to change your region code and also be able to see how many changes remaining you have on the drive.
long have you been using this CD ROM? I suspect the laser (lens) of the
CD ROM. I think the laser (lens) is weak that's why it cannot read
data/files on DVD.
To confirm if actually its a laser problem,
insert an Audio CD into the CD ROM and see if will play. If it plays,
then obviously, your laser (lens) is weak. But if it doesn't play Audio
CD, then it might still be the laser (lens) or a mechanism problem.
a lens cleaner, use it to clean the lens. If that doesn't solve the
problem, get a screw driver, open the CD ROM cover so that you can gain
access to the lens, use a cotton board to clean the surface of the lens.
This should clean dust or dirt that might be on the lens.
If non of the above solves the problem, then know that you need to replace the laser to a brand new CD ROM.
Hard drives are used for storing files or loading applications. A CD-Rom drive is what you need to read cd's and a DVD-Rom drive which can read both. You cant place a cd, dvd or blu-ray disc into a hardrive because it is enclose and does not have and open/close button for the tray to eject or close
Assuming you have a DVD drive and your HD is already set up, all you have to do is insert the DVD, open "My Computer", open the DVD drive folder and copy the files inside it to your HD folder. If you have trouble playing the video, download the VLC player, it plays almost anything, if you still have trouble, right click on the video folder and click play with VLC player.
