Default Liteon JLMS XJ-HD 166S DVD-ROM DRIVE has stopped working!

Hello can anyone help me?
My Liteon JLMS XJ-HD 166S DVD-ROM DRIVE has stopped working!

It was working a month ago but now it wont read any kind of media!

Device manager says it is working properly,My computer says the drive is present however when i put a dvd into the drive the drive spins and the green light flashes but the media is not detected.

When i click on the dvd drive icon it goes into "not responding".

I have reinstalled the drive and driver but that only resulted in the drive letter being changed from D to J!

Can anyone give me some tips on what to do?

Does it work in safe mode/in DOS? Could be a virus, otherwise kill it with fire! and buy a new one.

It could have gone bad. Liteons are not the greatest quality drives to begin with.

Check the cables and make sure they are secured in place

I have checked cables and everything is in the right place,
i think it might be a problem with the software,
what might i be missing that makes a dvd rom drive work in windows xp?
Someone told me that nero can mess up a dvd drive is that true?
