There are a number of reasons this could be the case.
I am going to assume that the drive has power!? You can open and close the drive!? I am also going to assume that you can hear the drive running and you can see the green light flickering?
* is it just a single ROM that it wont read... but it will read everything else? Or will it not read any Disc?
Are you trying to read a normal DVD/CD Disc? Some drives will not read a burned disc, even when it was the same drive that burned it!
I wouldn't believe that either, except that I saw it with my own eyes just last week!
Sometimes it is just a loose cable inside the case. Simply removing the cover and reseating the cables to the drive and the motherboard will sometimes fix the issue. *be careful or get someone who knows what they are doing to do this!!!
Baring all that, it is of course possible that the drive has just burned out and is no longer capable of reading discs.
its easy plz enter motherboard disc...its a booting disc..so it automatically go to new menu...answer some question after read...then go next...they ask u which drive...u enter drive name....then automatically format it....
cd/dvd drives are cheep, I would suggest in device manager uninstall device driver and re-install them with scan for new hardware. If thats not working goto ebay and get a cd/rw dvd reader try to pay a max of $20.00 you should find many in that price range.. and when re-installing make sure the jumper is set to the same as the one you currently have..
