    I have this exact problem, and i have tried everything that Vishal51 has said.
    But when I installed a new dvd drive, my computer recognized the device, but the icon still doesn't show in My Computer, and there is still no response when I insert a dvd or cd.

Check: 1. if on pressing the eject button on the drive, the DVD loading arm comes out. 2. if yes, replug your IDE cable. 3. If it does not work try using another IDE cable. 4. If still the same problem, connect it to anothet IDE port. 5. If the problem is still there get your DVD drive checked. I assume you have not fiddled with the jumper settings.

Well I'm unsure of your operating system, so follow this link and put your OS, find the correct drivers.

Update BIOS, install media drivers. Reset computer and see what happens.

NEW gcc-h23n will not read anything


If not reading DVD is a pattern (it won;t read ANY DVD, no matter if it's a burned one or an original movie) then the lens is dead. I'm afraid you'll have to go get a new one (new drives are very cheap, usually around 25-30$)

Trojan Horse virus still exist in partition files and you should format entire HDD with Disk-Manager-2000 or some thing like that. After format, reinstall Win XP.
I been faced such problem few months back and that was effected solution.

Dvd rom


I'm assuming you're using Windows... Try downloading the most recent Media Player, or install any DVD Video player. Possibly the one that came with your Drive.

Hope that helps..
