Default cd drive laptop

Hi Guys I have an Advent 6419 xp home.
The cd drive is not working if I put a cd in the icon of the drive comes on but nothing else.If I go into my computer and click on the drive it opens as if opening a folder but there is nothing there.

Try un-installing all related drivers and then installing updated drivers off the Advent / CD Drive manufacturers website.
