Hi, the Aopen dvd-rom in my PC seems to have stopped reading any discs dvd's and cds. Its only a year old and not used much. I've tried cleaning it and re-installing it. O.S is win2000 and it picks up the drive and the normal options are shown.
Is there anything else i can try that my fix the problem, before buying a new one.

The obvious thing is a cable check and plugs etc but I bet you've done this. Other things to consider;
Do a system/hardware device check. Any ?
Open Bios and check the drive entries.
Try another cable.
If you're master and slave...swap over then try just the faulty as Master.

Think carefully..what were you doing PCwise just before the failure ?

Take the unit out and get someone else to try it.

All the best.
