I recently installed windows 7 on my dell xps m1530 laptop. Till yesterday, the dvd drive was working perfectly fine, but yesterday, it just suddenly started ejecting all the cd/dvd i inserted. I tried using Microsoft trouble shooting, and when i chose that i was having a problem in playing the dvd, it started scanning for errors, and i inserted a dvd during it, it started working. But when the program ended, it found no problems :o 

After closing the program, i inserted another dvd, and the same problem.

The dvd drive is TEAC DVD+-RW DVW28SLC

I have tried reinstalling the firmware using device manager but it doesnt work.

Help !!! :cry:

The dvd drive magically started working since yesterday with no problems whatsoever. But thanks for replying anyway.
