CD/DVD Drive

I have an Advent T9408 Desktop computer. I need some help sorting out my drive as it is not reading disks. I have tried deleting the upper and lower limits. I have brought two registry softwars to sort out any fault and they dont work. I have uninstalled and re installed the drive. None of the above have worked has anyone got anymore ideas.

Is it still under warranty?
Does it read any disks at all?
Does it come up with any error codes?
Does it appear in my computer?
And have you tried cleaning it with a cleaning disk?

They do fail eventually and are fairly easy to replace if necessary. If you another PC you could try it on that. If it doesn't work on the other PC then you would definately know it had failed.
