DVD player on notebook won't work!!

So this is strange,that I can not watch any dvds on my notebook at the moment,since it won't work at all. Meanwhile I can still listen to cds if I want to,they play fine. Yet dvds,nothing,starts up,then sputters to astop,never getting enough power to actually start the dvd.

I have an Emachine notebook with 15.4 WS screen,will have to find the brand # later,it's not on me right now..and it was a 'PowerDVD' player..which until today worked perfectly. I don't watch dvds often,which is why it is confusing that it seems to have sputtered out recently.

Has anyone had this problem before and is there any way to fix it?
