My computer has stopped reading disks for some reason , why is this?
If i disconnect the disk drive then reconnect it -it works for a short time again .

Floppy disks or CD or DVD?

Drives can just wear out, so therefore it could be faulty. If you can try a different drive.

Have you checked the BIOS to make sure it is as it should be?

It may have developed a Fault, Can you test it in another Computer
