Hi everyone :), I have a problem with my dvd drive.I have an HP Pavillion with Win.XP Home. Recently the drive just stoppped working. I cant play CDs, DVDs, CDROMs or anything. When I try and use the Drive I get the messages (depending on which of two media players I use) "no valid drive/disk found" or "cant find DVD directory". Device Manager says "the device is working properly" The draw opens, in goes the disk, the read light flashes for a few seconds then stops and nothing happens. Ive tried uninstalling the drive and drivers and even System Restore. Someone has suggested that a media player may have corrupted something. Not sure whether its a HW or SW issue.
If someone can help it would be very much appreciated. Thx :?:

hmm, it seems to me, you need to clean up the lens, the problem can be in it(the most simple reason) or the drive is dead.
