    what is the warning sign? when you say it is not working does it mean it doesnt read or write? does it respond if you push the eject button? when you put in a cd does it indicate that it is reading it?

Use control panel - add/remove program and uninstall any programs for the DVD player. Next use control panel - system - hardware - devices and uninstall the DVD player. Leave the device connected. Reboot and when system detects the player load only the driver for Ur os. See if this fixes the problem. If still not work, sounds like time to replace. DVD writers do not have but a coupla' hundred writes and the laser burns out. Designed that way.
