DVD-Rom's problem! Plz help!

\015 One day, I was watching a movie on a DVD ( there are like 3 .avi files, and no autorun file) and everything was so normal. The day after when I found that my comp did not recognize the DVD-Rom as no icons (D:) showed in My Computer. I tried to look in the Device Manger and there was no DVD-Rom. I pushed the eject button and the disk wouldnt come out; no lights on DVD-Rom flashed either. \012I thought that was just a once-in-a-while problem so I restarted my comp. Well, I got my DVD-Rom icon back in My Computer, also in the Device Manager. That's good but only problem is that the DVD-Rom no longer can read any DVDs. I've tried couple of others DVDs but no good. First, I find that the DVD-Rom is Not Responding so I have to End Task in the Windows Task Manager. When I try to read the disk the second times, the DVD-Rom tell me to :" Please insert a disk into drive D:"\012\012I dont know what happened to my beloved DVD-Rom. Hope you guys can help!!!\012\012Any suggestions is warmly welcome!! Many thanks in advance!!\015\012My dvd rom was working fine until i recently installed a dvd writer. Now when i switch my Pc on the dvd rom(old one) does not respond, the light used to flash, but now its not even flashing. It happened in a space of 10 minutes. How do i sort this out. Please help i would really appreciate Thanks\015
