Default Help! CD Drive Problem

I'm not sure if this is suppose to be posted here, but anyways,

I play lots of games on my computer. All of a sudden my CD Drive doesn't read the disks at all. NO CDS WORK. Ive tried cleaning the cds but that doesnt work either because their all scratch free. Any support?

best buy, circuit city, comp usa, or online newegg.com. i dont think radio shack has it. compare the prices and then buy one. also check theirs papers where they have specials and things.
