DVD Drive

My Daughters machine is saying the DVD drive is working normally but when you put a disc in(CD, or DVD) it doesnt run and says insert disk).
Is it simply bust and I'll have to shell out £15.00 for a new DVD ROM drive or is there something I could try first (I've checked the drivers )
Thanks

Re: DVD Drive

Probaly pointless, but have you tried unplugging the cables and reseating them?

Re: DVD Drive

Check out: Control panel/system/device manager, see if the DVD drive is shown in there, if not as Hulls say's it's more than likely the 40 way connector out of position. 
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.
