Well, for some odd reason my CD and DVD drive decided not to work the other day. My computer recognizes that its plugged in, but when I put a disc in it doesn't read it and if I double click on the drive it freezes up until I remove the disc. I checked the BIOS it said that they were enabled, I checked the Device Manager and it says they are working although they aren't. I tried switching the IDE cables with one I had. nothing different. I have tried many discs so its not them, theres somthin up with the drives. Thanks

I don't think that would help, considering both my dvd and cd drives aren't working, and I doubt they both would get dirty at the same time
