Default DVD rom wont run discs

Don't know why, but my dvd rom will not auto start or recognize the presence of a disc when inserted. In the past I had problems with it spitting the disc out then bsod. Dont have a clue what to do.

What BSOD stop error are you getting?

Did you try a new SATA cord, perhaps? Or possibly a new SATA port?
