12101B Won't read Blank Discs!

I have burnt lots of discs with my lite-on when it quit reading blank discs. When I put a fresh cdr in it spins up a number of times with the green light on then stops and says there is no disc in the drive. It reads pressed and finalized cdrs fine. Tried reinstalling the driver, firmware, DMA off and on, new aspi layer and I can’t figure out what the problem is. Here’s my nero infotool info. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Nero InfoTool 2.04

Honestly, posting nearly 1000 lines of a Nero log is not really necessary… The drive is probably dead. Time to consider purchasing a new one.
