My DVD Rom does not Recognize CD or DVD I put onto it. When clicked on this drive, got a message asking to insert a disk into the drive. Is this a hardware or a software problem?
How to fix this problem if it is a sotware problem. Many thanks.

Right click My Computer and choose Properties, then the Hardware tab, and then Device Manager. Select the device and click on the uninstall button. Ok any warning message and restart your computer. It should be detected, and reinstalled. If not detected, or it still fails to work then the drive has probably had it.

Very easy to replace, and also now very cheap.
