Problems with my DVD Drive

I hope this is on the write forum. My Dvd Drive no matter what I do wont read any disks… It seems to be thinking and then nothing happens when I manually try to run the disk it says please insert a disk into drive… I have uninstalled it and rebooted it. I have even tried updating it . Is there anything else I can do?

Get a bootable cd or dvd and try to boot from it.
