Hi there.
It sounds like the drivers could be bad or the lens has gone.
This can be a common problem with vista loosing the CD/DVD drives.
Do\015\012this >>>>>> right click on "computer" and select\015\012"manage" from the sub menu, then select "device manager" from the left\015\012hand side, it will generate a list of devices, look down the list for\015\012CD/DVD and click on the + icon next to it, from the drop down list\015\012right click and uninstall, restart the PC and let vista re-install the\015\012drivers for you, then try to use the CD/DVD.
If this does not work please post back.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!
