    Is it just DVD's it won't read or cd's as well?
    Have you checked all the cable connections?
    Is it being recognised in Windows......... check in device manager.
    If it is and it won't read either disc I suspect it needs replacing.

    I don't know about DVDs, but when a CDROM does this, it is usually bad and needs to be replaced.
