thanks for the fast reply. i can insert a dvd or cd in either drive and they wont read or play. i go to ' my computer" and click on the drive with the disc and it says the name of the file. i double click the drive and it shows the files but wont play them. i use dvdflick to burn files and imageburn but i cant take a file and get my drives to write them right from the media player or media center. i can put anything on a flash drive but no luck with drives.strange. any ideas?

Have you checked the Device Manager to see if there is a yellow ! or a red X against the device.
One of these may help:
1. Uninstall the drive through Device Manager.
Restart computer. The drive will be automatically reinstalled.
Double click on cdgone.zip to unzip it.
Right click on cdgone.reg, click Merge.
Accept registry merge.
4. Go to Device Manager, click a "+" sign next to IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers.
You'll see two items:
- ATA Channel0 (or Primary Channel)
- ATA Channel1 (or Secondary Channel)
Right click on each of them, and click Uninstall. Confirm.
Restart Windows. They'll be automatically reinstalled.
Thanks to Broni for the above instructions
The laser on the drive may have failed BTW, they are mechanical and will at some point fail I`m afraid.

Either way the drive is down the pipe.

The files being identified but not read etc made me suspect this.
