My DVD drive stops working while watching movies

  1. Hi, my DVD drive on my laptop plays up while watching movies. During the first half of watching a movie, it runs perfectly fine. But when the movie is within say ten or even maybe 20minutes sometimes towards coming to the end, it starts making some kind of clicking noise and it stops reading the disc. Even after pressing stop, the DVD drive carries on making that noise. Until I press the eject button it finally stops. Is there anyway I can fix this? Or would I have to get a new DVD drive?

    It might be cheaper to just order a new optical drive to be honest, it sounds like its probably hardware related by the noise.
