Your dvd may have power to open up so that you can insert the cd but the only possible thing that i can suggest is that the cable attached to your dvd may be damaged or try checking if your computer recognizes your dvd and if its not recognized... it may have problems on the cable or the hardware itself.

No power from dvd writter

Try to uninstall/reinstall driver from Device Manager or check if the driver even exists. If not, have it personally checked by a local technician. It's either defective or just lose.

Dvd writter not working

if the device is set up as a master and not a slave device it may be interfering with the hard drive. check the jumpers on the back of the device. If it's plugged into the same cable as the hard drive it must be a slave device. Otherwise, check your bios upon bootup to see if you it's trying to boot from the device instead of from the hard drive.
