    This may be true for the others, but I have one caveat, mine reads music CDs without difficulty. It is only DVD and CD-ROM discs that don't work.

Check that the drive is present in device manager
if it is, try a cd cleaner in the drive,if it is not, search for hardware changes ,it may find the drive and set it up, but the drive may have just died.

good luck

Does my laptop have a dvd burner


Can I have your laptop model number.

You can also confirm the same by looking at the drive externally

If it has DVD-RW and DVD-RW DL on it then it can read and write CD/DVDs
DVD - R ROM then it can read DVDs but cannot write.
CD-ROM/ CD-RW cannot read / write DVD
