dvd rw doesnt recognize cd/dvd inserted

helo there
First i want apologize for english lvl of mine and now to the bussines

My cd/dvd writer/reader dont recognize dvd or cd inserted. I can ut any kind of dvd/cd and win just tell me that there is no cd/dvd inserted. In better cases he tells me that my win7 dvd is ready for writing :-) or it just asks me if i want accept it as USBflash disk . As well my drive is so cool, that win7 offers me "formating of mine win7 dvd inserted" . So basicly . Drivers are ok, under "my computer" button is all ok (visible and ready to put dvd) . WHen i put dvd inside it shouts on me and makes me emo by phrases "no dvd inserted" and my dvd drive jumps out of pc (with dvd 2gether ofc)

At the end - i cant instal any kind of win (neither the same i have in pc now -ultimatex64 , neither any other -xp,vista,2k QQ) bcos it dont want to boot even the bootable cds of OS in pre-win menu after start pc (bios set correctly)

Here is my device manager screenshot Imageshack - syst.png

Thank you for all replys and have better x-mass then i do have Cheers !

Unfortunately, Optical Disk Drives (CD - DVD) have a high rate of failure. In these cases it is necessary to replace the drive.

Laser failure is indicated when the drive is recognized by the laptop and OS but CDs are not.

You can sometimes correct the error by blowing the drive clean using compressed air. Dust or lint inside the drive can interfere with the read/write laser.

On a laptop you also want to be sure the drive tray is completely closed and hear it latch.
