For some reason my dvd drive is not reading discs. It has been working before, and now it doesnt seem to read any discs i put in the drive. It also doesnt make any noise or any sign that it is in. My problem is is that the dvd drive isnt recognizing the dvd's i put. Even if if put a disc in the drive the D drive says that there is no discs inserted when there is. I am not sure if this is a hardware or software malfunction. I have tried: 1. deleting MousePoint2 in the registry and restarting. 2. uninstalling my cd/dvd drives then rebooting 3. deleting the upper and lower files in the registry or whatever that was when the drive was working i remember leaving a disc in the drive then shutting down the computer. Maybe that was the problem? My specs are Windows 7 ultimate 64 bit service pack 1 Dell inspiron 620 intel core i3 3.3 ghz intel hd graphics family 6 gb ram I had my computer for 3 months and the dvd drive isnt working is this normal that i have to replace the dvd drive?
