Default DVD/CD-ROM Drive doesn't read discs

Hey, I've been trying to get my DVD drive to read things such as installation cds, etc, but I just can't get it to work. Here's some info:
  • Model: TSSTcorp CDDVDW TS_L633L ATA Device
  • OS: Windows 7 64 bit
  • Computer: HP Pavilion DV7-1245dx laptop
  • When I insert the disc it makes a noise (I believe the laser moving up and down) so that you know it is spinning
  • Drive E: is recognized in My Computer but it doesn't have the name of the DVD on it... It just says DVD RW Drive E:
  • If I click on the E: drive in My Computer while a disc is in there, it goes into a "forever loading" process.
  • If I run E:\ through the run application it freezes it until I take the disc out.
  • If I go to Administrative tools>Computer Management>Disc Management>ReScan Discs while a disc is NOT in there, it will show up as (DVD E: No Media.) However if I insert a disc and re-scan it will re-scan forever until I take the disc out
  • I've uninstalled the drive from device manager and restarted the computer to reinstall it.
  • I've updated to the latest firmware

Any ideas?

The drive hardware is probably wearing out.How old is it?
