Inspiron 1300 cd not recognised

\015 When I put a CD or DVD in to my inspiron 1300 it does not recognise that the CD is in and then when I look in to My Computer it still does not recognise the disk. Any help would be greatly appreciated.\015

Answers :

Try cleaning the lens with a damp q-tip with glass cleaner. This will make sure that dust or dirt isn't affecting the laser.

At this point go ahead and try different discs and if the drive still isn't reading them then the laser is bad and the drive would need to be replaced.
I had this problem with windows 2000. Have you tried to clean the lense.
