You may have a failing DVD drive. Check all of the connections and make sure they are securely connected. See if the computer is seeing the DVD. Click on computer and see if it shows your DVD. Then go to Device Manager, expand dvd, right click and select properties. It should say this device is working properly.

The good news is, even if the drive is dying or dead, it is one of the cheapest parts to replace. In the U.S., a good Samsung drive can be had for about $20.

If it has recently started this, the DVD may be malfunctioning. As DeaconFrost said, a new one is $20 or less.

Keep in mind that a dead or dying DVD drive can still show up in Device Manager and report that everything is working properly.
