Can't read CDs

  sub0 15:26 30 Jun 2006

Hi, does anyone know what may be done about this:

Whatever CDs I put into my laptop, when I look at the drive in Explorer, there is nothing there and Windows says there is 0 bytes of free space on the disk, and 0 bytes of data stored on it.
I have tried using another drive - a DVD/RW instead of a CD drive, but the problem hasn't gone away.
It recognises whatever disk is in the drive when the computer starts up, but if I take the disk out and try to put it or another disk in, it won't recognise it. It does, however, know that there is a disk in it.

Any ideas?
