No I put the disc in and nothing. When I click the drive to see if its reading it just opens the tray and says insert disc.

Hey yeah I've tried that. It always says something like Windows detects that the software is up to date and it doesn't let me do anything after that.

Guess I need to put it into a shop to get fixed?

In device manager right click the dvd drive /uninstall the driver. then reboot and it should reinstall the driver. after reboot go back to device manager the right click dvd drive /scan for hardware changes.
i cant say it will work but worth a shot as all else has failed
