DVD/CD drive not reading either

  1. My DVD/CD drive has stopped reading any discs that I insert into them. My laptop is fairly new as I received it as a Christmas present. My laptop is a Toshiba (Satellite series). This happened once before about a month ago. When that happened, I simply reformatted my HDD (sorry for incorrect terminology) and it worked again. I would do the same again, but I have a lot of things on my HDD that would be a pain to get back including things that require internet access like the Orange Box (I do not have internet access for my laptop at the moment).

    Other details:

    It read a DVD perfectly about an hour before it stopped working.

    My OS is Windows Vista (32bit)

    I recently deleted a HDD partition (although that was not the case when it happened before).

    I also have a problem when using my capture card. When I try to record it says "HD Space limit,stop it". Although that is likely completely unrelated.

    Thanks for any help you can give me.
