CD drive not responding...

My CD Burner has recently stopped working. It will eject fine, and the light flickers on for a couple of seconds but that's it. I click on the drive and it says to insert a disk. It's all ready in, it just won't read the discs anymore. I'm using Windows XP Pro. I all ready ran spybot and my virus scan. Any other suggestions how to fix this?
