DVD Drive not reading Discs issue.
Hi people, I have an issue with my computer. The problem is I have two DVD Combo drives. Both of them are not working unfortunately. The drives will take the CD/DVD in but doesn't read anything. When I called a professional he informed me the computer is outdated and I need to update . So I took his advice and updated the MOBO and processor. I kept the other components as it is. After upgrading the drives were working fine. Then all of a sudden I have the same issues again. This time atleast I want to check with the great minds here to see if I can get a help. Lemme tell you I am no noob when it comes to computers but not an geek too. I know how to execute the solution you guys are gonna give me. Here is my config.
ASUS P5G41T-M LTX MOBO.
Intel Pentium E5700
2 GB Transcend 1333Mhz RAM
500 GB x 1 Seagate @7200 rpm - SATA
250GB x 1 Seagate @7200rpm - SATA
ASUS EN8400 GS 512MB Graphic Card.
Windows 7 Ultimate 32-Bit Version 6.1 (Build 7600).
1 x HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GH24NS70 ATA Device - SATA
1 x HL-DT-ST DVD-RAM GSA-H55N ATA Device - IDE
To give you heads up I have Googled the issue and found some so called solutions but nothing worked for me.
1. Changing the Link State Power Management settings.
2. There are no upper and lower filters so I couldn't do anything more.
3. Uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers.
I am hoping somebody can help me out . If I haven't included enough information here plz forgive my ignorance and let me know what I need to include I will provide as soon as I find out.
Thanks in advance for your help

Welcome to SevenForums.
You seem to have tried the various fixes for the problem.
Both the optical drives working and then failing in tandem could indicate a common extraneous problem.
Could it be a dodgy and aging Power Supply starving the drives?
What is your Power Supply ratings?
Other experts may perhaps be able tell whether it is adequate for your current configuration.
Apart from furnishing this info, you may also try one drive at a time and check whether it works. It will also give you the opportunity to check whether the power connections are secure.
