If it started being flaky, now it doesn't work at all, there's probably a physical flaw. Start by opening the case and making sure all the cable connections are firmly seated.

Well, it's sounding a lot like a bad drive. If this is a CD-ROM, they're really dirt cheap nowadays, I have a whole box of them in my closet that were removed for CD-RW drives, must have 7-8 of the damned things! :D
