Send it to Dell. Only problem with laptops... Tough to do DIY's.

I agree, send it to dell. Also, does it just not read discs, or it wont even open?

Send it in, OR buy a replacement theres usually only one screw holding it in.

NOTICE: To avoid damaging the system board, you must remove the main battery before you service the computer.

Removing the Optical Drive


Turn the computer over and remove the M2.5 x 8-mm screw from the indention labeled with a lock symbol ( ).


Insert a screwdriver into the indention and push the notch on the metal tab to release the drive from the bay.




1
metal tab

2
optical drive



Pull the drive out of the drive bay.


I would try to borrow another drive or get your drive tested
It could be cracked or broken on the motherboard where the
drive connects
