I have been away from my pc for months and upon comming back I was surprised to find out my dvdrom has stopped working. Despite the fact the green light is on and that I can open it up and put dvds/games etc into the drive it still fails to work.
On my computer there is not icon for the dvd drive, only the c-drive and non existing floppy disk drive, also there is no autorun like before.
I'm a complete novice at computers so I know very little (don't even know how to get onto bios). I'm wanting to learn, so any help would be fantastic in resolving my issue.

Having a look at the computer's guts, all the wires and connections seem to be in place.
