I have a satellite c675. The dvd drive was working a couple days ago, but now it won't play anything. I'll put in a dvd disk and it would take some time to read it. Then it says please put a disk in when there is already a disk in it. I checked the properties and it says it's working fine when it's really not. Help!!

Have you checked it with several disks, both DVD and CDs? If yes, try cleaning the pickup heads (with the laser "eye") with a soft cloth or a cotton swab. If that does not work, drive is probably broken, need a new one.
The drive may be dying. You'll have to change it. But since it's a laptop, it might cost more.
the lasers get weak over time and will stop reading DVDs and then CDs, DVDs being "denser" need a stronger laser to read. unfortunately the drive will need replaced.
