For a while now, the CD/DVD drive on my Acer TravelMate 2420 (bought in 2006) has not been working with CDs or CD-ROMs. The drive reads DVDs and DVD-ROMs without any problems, but when I insert a CD or CD-ROM into the drive, I hear it beginning to work, but it shuts down and stops working without recognizing the presence of a disc in the drive. ("Beginning to work", in the sense that I hear it "revving" up a bit, then stopping, then "revving" again, then stopping for good.) I'm not sure what to do.
