HP Pavillion not reading audio CD

\015 My pavillion dv9335nr laptop is not reading audio CDs. When I insert a standard music CD (I've tried with 5 different CDs), it just spins around and makes a lot of noise but does not seem to automatically play the CD. This problem seems to be specific to CDs because when a DVD is played, it seems to work just fine. I am using Windows Vista as my operating system. Please help.\015

Answers :

It is possible that this is a drive issue, I've seen drives that one of the optical reader device has gone out, but generally it'e the DVD reader and will only read CD's. It's very rare that the CD reader goes and the DVD reader works. Before you replace drive, if it's only music CD's (you didn't mention program CD's), then update your media player. If it still won't play, then unistall the media player and completely reload it. At this point you can replacse the drive.
