It sounds like you have a bad cd-rom. before replacing, you might want to try deleting the cd-rom drivers from the system manager and see if that helps.

Even if you don't have driver for CD-DVD ROM with the Operating System,your BIOS must recognize the CD ROM.Set the BIOS to Default setting and check it recognise now.Check if you have disable anything related to CD ROM in your BIOS. Remove your CD Rom and place it again and check.

Drive light comes because of power supply to the CD-ROM.

If nothing works,Download the firmware update
