I searched on this site, but didn't find anything really helpful. hopefully, someone can help. Up until today, my dvd-rom drives were working fine. All of a sudden, they won't read. They have power, and open and close. the device manager says they are fine. however, when i put in a disc (like today, trying to install games), i went to My Computer to open the disc, and it just keeps saying "please insert disc into drive" whatever the drive happens to be. I'm going to try a system restore now, and then I'll just hope and pray. i need my drives! all posts are appreciated.
