I have a sony vaio desktop computer, and it wont read dvd-rom or cds, it does read dvds though.
I have gone to the device manager, and it says everything is working properly.
Its a samsung dvd-rom sd616e

Uninstall and reinstall the drive in device manager and retry.

However its likely the drive has failed at approx £20 to replace they are not worth trying to repair.
