I have had my computer for over a year now, and one day about a month ago it simply would not read anything I put in the CD/DVD drive. When inserting a Disc, the Orange light comes on, and my cursor changes from an arrow to an arrow and a CD, so it would seem like it is reading it. After about 20 seconds, it gives up, and if I try to access the D: drive through My Computer or if I try to open an app that requires the inserted CD, it tells me to retry (or in case of the game, to insert the appropraite CD). The cords are obviously hooked up if the cursor changes upon putting in a new cd - it just wont read it. I am trying like hell to avoid reformatting. Any thoughts?
