OPTIARC DVD RW AD-7173A problem

hi,
not sure were my problem is,

my drive wont respond when i insert a disc,
i can hear the cd turning over but no reaction from the computer,
it was working fine untill i tryed to upgrade my nero software,
i manualy deleted some of the files in order to put the new one on,
but think i deleted something important

i update the drivers
also uninstalled the drive and reinstalled it
still no joy,
