CD drive making an "interesting" noise

  1. I hope this is the correct forum...I would appreciate any help.
    Problem: I load CD's and the drive makes a funny clicking noise. My computer recognizes that I have in fact put a CD into to drive on a somewhat random basis. I'm no computer technician, but it sounds like a physical problem with my computer. Any advice concerning what might be causing this issue and what the next logical step for me to follow would be greatly appreciated.

    CD Drive

    This means that the reading head has been knocked out of alignment. It is a physical thing but needs to be replaced.
