DVD/CD Drive won't work

I have had an Acer Aspire 5733M laptop for over a year and everything has worked fine up until a today when I went to play a CD and it wouldn't work. The drive makes a whirring noise like usual but then stops almost immediately. I have tried turning my laptop off and on several times and changing the disk I try to use, but the same thing keeps happening.

 

Can someone please help me out? :smileysad:

I ran the programme like you said, but it didn't fix it, it just said "CD/DVD drive not readable"

If it says that you need to replace the drive. If it was a software problem it would have fixed it.
