May need head cleaning or may be a damaged head. If this is a desktop, cheap enough to replace - can get quite decent stuff under £20.

"wont play back". Do you mean it won't play music or video recordings, or it can't read any disks, even data files?

right click - My computer - select properties- hardware tab - device manager.

click on the ide controllers - right click primary channel -select properties - advance settings tab.

do the same for the secondary controller.
