CD/DVD reader is not working, please help.

My cd/dvd reader is not working at all, when I put any cd or dvd on it, the led of the reader starts blinkin but then it stops and nothing happens. I'm using a hp pavilion dv7-1025nr, windows vista 64-bit. Maybe there are some drivers that i should download, in that case, can some one help me with link?, Thanks.

Re: CD/DVD reader is not working, please help.

When you access this page from the link, ensure that this is your machine by entering your Model # and then trying your Product # (both on the Service Tag on the bottom of your computer). This will confirm your Model#/Product# for future updates.

It fixed my DVD drive after it mysteriously stopped working on vista home premium on a presario f700 (f756nr) notebook.
