Windows 7: SATA DVD Drive - Spins but doesn't load.

SATA DVD Drive - Spins but doesn't load.

The SATA DVD I have installed, worked after installing it and up till recently, I can't tell you how recent. Ever since that 'recent point' when I popped a DVD into the drive Windows7 doesn't load the contents. I've searched for an answer including the Microsoft Knowledge base, but most question relate to Windows not detecting the drive after installing, in this case the drive was working up until a point. When I pop the DVD into the drive the drive light is on and the drive is spinning but Windows7 won't open up the DVD contents ? The DVD loads on all of my IDE drives but the SATA drive it doesn't !?!?!?!
