cd rom drive not working

I have tried to open my disc drive and noticed that nothing happens. On further inverstifation i have foun that the green light is staying on and it will not open at all. I have also found that the drive is not showing in explorer and does not read at all.

I have looked for solutions so have unistalled the drivers and also looked in the registry for filters but still have the problem. I have tried MS and my fixit.Does it sound like i need a new drive or is there anything else i can try?

Thanks in adance
