That usually means it needs replacement. As long as you see the drive light up and spin trying to read things then you know the problem is in the drive. No lights can be power or cables. You may have noticed that it wouldn't write dvd's then it wouldn't read them, and finally it wouldn't read the cd's.Thats a typical failure pattern. When these drives fail the heads get out of alignment. So the dvd's have problems first as they require a lot more accuracy. The cd's are relatively coarse and tolerate a lot more mis alignment. This is repairable but definitly not worth doing. when these were worth hundreds of dollars we would realign the heads but they are so cheap these days you should just get a new one.
