Disc Drive not working at all

Hi. All of a sudden my disc drive will not work. It plays no DVD or CD of any kind. I don't get an error message. It just doesn't respond. Any suggestions? Thanks very much all.

Check that none of the cables inside or outside have come adrift.

Can you see the drive in My computer?

and / or in disk management?

All cables are good and yes I do see the drive in "my computer".
