ok, i am perhaps the most computer illiterate person ever so sorry if this makes little sense.
basically, my laptop dvd/cd drive doesn't seem to be working anymore. whenever a disk is inserted it is not recognised by the computer. i have no idea where to start trying to fix it.
any help would be much appreciated.
thank you

Another possible fix from M$ if this doesn't work:
