Answers :

The drive has a problem ok. It could be the lens is faulty and as such cannot recognize any format. If you can have access to any other compatible DVD drive, that will do for the test. Alternatively, you could try yours in any other compatible system around you for confirmation ok. The problem indeed lies with your DVD drive and the system. Good luck
Your dvd rom won't play dvd, cd and even respond it is due to your optical lens that cannot read data from any disc. the laser is so weak. for short its blind thats why not responding.
