The computer was not recognizing the D Drive (CD). After re-booting it recognizes it, but now neither the D or E (DVD) drives work. When I put in a recorded disc the light on the drive lights up and the curser shows a disc, but it does not play. If I open Windows Media Player to play the disc, it cannot find the file. If I use Real Player it acts like it is going to work, but nothing happens. When I put a blank disc into the drive and go to properties on "My Computer" it shows that the disc does not have any free space. Even a data disc with very little date on it shows no free space. Any ideas. Thank you,

What kind of disk are you trying to play? A DVD? If so, you will have to purchase software that is specifically made for this purposes (such as Power DVD).

Also, it's correct for it to say there is no free space left on a CD or DVD if it is closed (which means, data can no longer be added to the disk).

These were discs that were not closed, except for one pre-recorded disc. This pre-recorded disc had previously played without any problem. The other discs were either brand new, or one was a data disc which I was using to constantly update a Quicken back-up and was never closed.
Thank you,
