If not, it seems the alignment of ventilation shroud has changed. Did you open the case and the plastic cover underneath? Maybe it that does not fit in place before you closed the PC cover. If not open the PC and the black plastic cover (ventilation shroud). Close the cover, start the PC and see if it takes the CD. If not, there's a physical problem with the drive and needs replacement. But if it works with shroud removed, open the cover and try this trick:
Find the screw that holds the DVD drive in place. it is besides a small metal notch pointing upward. Loosen that screw, don't take it off. Insert a small, thin metal or plastic strip underneath and tighten the screw. replace shroud and check. You might have to experiment a bit before the perfect alignment is achieved.
If this is a laptop, remove the drive from the laptop and try to put a paper clip in the little hole in the drive to open it manually, if its a desktop then do the same thing, but u dont have to remove the drive from the computer. if all else fails, buy a new one. a dvd burner in a desktop computer is only 40-50 bucks.

Hi I have bought a 2nd hand laptop NEC Versa M320 which runs on XP the only problem with it is that it will only run CD's and not DVD's.
