Help Please - Pioneer 108

hello guys, newb here.
had the pioneer dvr 108 for about a year working fine. all of a sudden it now wont read or load discs, blank or otherwise. Im sure i havent changed any settings or installed any new drivers.
if i try to explore in ‘my computer’ it freezes.
any ideas would be well appreciated.
cheers
scott

Test in another computer, maybe the drive is dead.
