My disk drive does not read the disks

My disk drive wont read any type of disk (cd,dvd,floppy) and my dad thinks there could be a problem with the mother board so it would be useless to buy a new drive and i personally think that is a rip-off :fou: :fou: :fou: :fou: :fou: :fou: :fou: :fou: :fou: :fou:

  1. Hi

    There should be no connection between problems with Floppy disk drive & DVD drive

    Win 7 does not show removable drives until disk inserted.

    Registry corruption can prevent CD or DVD being read (Google 'upper filter drivers' for fix)

    Security Software can prevent access to CD/DVD

    or hardware problems may occur. Does Bios and Device Manager show a CD\DVD drive ?
    CD & DVD have separate laser which can fail. power & data cables can come loose at either end

    Can you boot up from a Windows CD/DVD or any other bootable CD ?
    if so it looks like software or registry corruption.
