My DVD drive has slowy gotten worse over time in terms of actually loading what I put in. Usually all I get is a lot of loading noises. When I go to "computer" and see the dvd drive listed, it just says DVD RW Drive, If i try to right click on it to see options , it just freezes. Once and a while a disc will load, and recently one loaded after about 15 minutes. It's an all in one computer so the dvd drive is located on the side, if that helps.
