Default My DvD r/rw drive

My dvd r/rw drive randomly stopped working a few weeks ago. Other people use my computer so I don't know if someone did something or what. It is the original drive that came with my computer, Gateway 500x.

The DVD drive is recognized by the computer, and it recognizes when I put a CD in it, but each time it says that there is nothing on the cd.



I tried to connect my dad's external cd drive and it does the same thing. It recognizes that I put a disc in it, but says the disc was blank. It works fine on his computer.

No, none of the discs were blank.

Any ideas? I like to be able to use my cd drive.

Ya drivers might be corrupted, so try uninstalling the drivers for the drive and ya IDE controllers, then restart the computer and it will reinstall fresh drivers.
