computer not recognising CD or DVD drives

I have a Sony computer running on Windows XP, Pentium 4 and have a DVD RW and CD drive.

I have Easy CD Creator installed and use this to occassionally copy discs. However at the moment, the programme keeps saying to insert source disc even when one is in the tray. I have tried several different cds and DVDs and always the same lack of recognition.

In Windows Explorer, again the cds/DVDS in the drive dont seem to be recognised. Never been a problem before...Any ideas anyone?

Any help appreciated

You could try a new Drive Ribbon cable
