I have this CD/DVD drive and everytime I put a CD into it, nothing seems to happen. The drive doesn't read the CD and nothing pops up on my screen. All of the lights work fine and I am able to put a CD into the drive. I looked inside my machine to see if there were any problems with cables, but everything seemed to be in the right place. I have no idea why this problem persists, and I would like to figure out why. Can someone help me?

Reinstall drivers. If this does not work then buy a new one. New optical drive is $20 and will probably save you time. Or RMA it if under warranty.
