Windows 7: My optic driver won't read discs.

My optic driver won't read discs.

Ok, so I've been reading around and searching for a bit, but so far nothing has helped. My optic drive simply won't start "spinning", reading, any discs. Other than that all is normal. When I insert for example a CD-rom the icon for the drive changes to a basic CD-rom icon, it's like it can feel what kind of disc I've inserted, but it refuses to read it, same goes with DVDs. The drive is a Plextor DVDR PX-891SA.

Thank you all in advance.
