Hello,

I have an older computer, when I try to put in a DVD, PC game, CD, or any disc it does nothing and when I click the DVD/ROM in My Computer it opens the try and says 'Please insert disc' as if there was not anything in it already. I've tried numerous things to repair it, but nothing has worked. Does anyone have anything so I can get this fixed??
