I can't get my CD/DVDW to work!

I have a TSSTcorp CD/DVDW TS-L532A drive.

I've checked the device driver and it is operating normally. I have uninstalled it and rebooted my computer with no affect.

My computer is a Gateway.

Any suggestions?

3 years is enough for cd/dvd rom, it needs to be changed. It isn't expensive.

You could attempt to "clean" it but I wouldn't recommend it. Three years is about the lifespan of a burner depending on how much you used it. A new burner will cost between $30-$40.

Thanks for the information, I had a feeling that I would have to replace it.
