DVD Rom not reading discs?

DVD +/- R drive on my eMachines computer (about 6 mos old). recently it wont read DVD discs. It has in the past, but I haven't used it much.

Yesterday I tried to load some data DVDs, and the drive will open and close, but when I put in a disc and double click the DVDR drive it doesn't show a disk is in and it just opens the drive like an empty folder.

No DVDs will work, but in device manager it says the drive is working. any ideas? DVDs work in other computers.

Have you tried reading a CD? If so, your problem might be similar to, but opposite of, the one posted here:

I would remove the drive from within device manager, reboot, and let it add it back.
