I have tried all kind of cds to see if the problem is the disk. I am not using CD-RW disks. The drive worked when the computer was running WIN95. When I put a disk in the drive a little cdrom symbol appears on the LCD indicator display strip that this computer has (it doesn't have lights and all that like a modern laptop) and it seems to spin and make noise for a few seconds but then stops.
So, any ideas for me? I've searched around quite a lot but haven't been able to figure it out. Thanks!
