    The drive could be dirty. I’d suggest picked up a CD/DVD drive lens cleaner from your local electronics store. It looks like a DVD, there is just a small brush on the bottom of the disk.

    Other things to try:
    Make sure the data and power cables that connect to the dvd drive aren’t lose

    Make sure the DVDs you’re trying to use aren’t scratched up

    If none of this works the drive could just be dead. Contact the manufacturer for a replacement if under warranty or pick up a new one.
