The DVD and/or CD lasers may have gone kaput.

Check the cables and leads for firm connections and then Uninstall and reboot again.

If no luck then the drive has probably had its day.

They are as cheap as chips these days to buy new - even the fastest DVD rewriter with Lightscribe is now less than £20 from some top manufacturers.
