Laptop dvd drive not working

Please my DVD/CD-RW drive (H:) cannot read any cd or dvd plate. I went to the device manager and got a message that the drive is working properly, yet when I insert any disk, it cannot play. I would appreciate a help from anyone please.

  1. Sounds like it's dead. Buy another one.

    Does it spin them up, and give noises?

    Maybe it's some dirt on the laser.

    Thanks a million for your response. By simple rubbing the lens with a clean dry towel, the dvd started playing both the audio cds and videos. I am very grateful. Thank you.
