    I wasnt asking for sympathy, i was asking for help, maybe someone here knows how to troubleshoot it or maybe its a driver issues and can help me to the right direction because i googled for a driver with no success.

    This is not a driver issue, it a bad drive issue. Replace the drive and all your troubles will disappear

    I suggest a replacement. If it won't read any discs, then you need to replace it. optical drives are dirt cheap now.
