IBM laptop CD/DVD drive

Hello, my laptop doesn't see the CD/DVD drive any more, it doesn't show up in the device mgr, but does spin when I put a disk in the drive.
I'm running XP pro

  1. Have you tried removing it and reinserting it in the laptop?
  2. Yes, and troubleshooting via MS troubleshooter, useless as usual. I know that sometimes parts quit for no obvious reason but was hoping this wasn't one of those times. Any other suggestions? I don't have another laptop to try the drive in.
