DVD/CD drive reads DVDs fine, but not CDs - Dell Inspiron 1545 - Optiarc DVD +- RW AD-7580S

This question is not answered

I've had my Inspiron for about a year and a half, and now when I try and put a CD in the drive, to put it into Itunes for example, the drive starts rotating the disc at high speed, then stops, then does this over and over without even registering that there is a disc in the drive, and my computer freezes up when this happens.

I'm running Windows 7 - 64bit

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

 

Gordon
