Hey there..

There are CD Cleaning tools that will allow you to insert a CD and it will clean the Lazer inside the drive, now this can maybe fix the problem. Is there any loud sounds that come from the drive when you try to play a cd?
Most times its alot easier and cheaps to go and buy a new CD drive.

Disconnect it from your computer, pull the drive out, spray some air into it(pressured air) I still think the cd is the best thing, worked for me.
