CD RW not recogising discs

  pekingzibaduck 06:58 20 May 2005

LG CD/RW has suddenly stopped recognising when there is a disc in the drive.
The lights on the drive flash as usual when I insert a disc but it doesn't play.
The drive is showing in My Computer but when you click on it there is a message saying "Drive not accessible. This drive is not ready."

My other CDROM drive is OK.

To try to solve this :
I have unistalled the hardware in device manager and reinstalled it. It is showing and properties says it is working ok.
I have uninstalled and reinstalled Nero and IN CD.

OS is 98se

Any Ideas?????

How old is it? Could be that the laser has failed in it.
