For some reason my cd drive stopped working. It has a cd in it for a game i use that requires the cd to play, but it says that the cd is not in there when i try to play and it just tells me to retry. Not only that, but the drive will not open. I press the eject button and it just flashes and doesnt do anything. I looked in because i was able to open up the front hatch (i didnt tear it open, it simply is on a loose hinge) and saw that it all looked normal. I have an hp pavilion xt878 with windows xp. If anyone has any suggestions on how to get the drive to open again or function or both, it will be very appreciated.
