CD/DVD drive no longer working

I have a Lenovo Ideapad 310.  I think it was Weds, that my dvd drive stopped working, it was working completely fine the day before.  At first I thought it might be the media player, i have Lenovo PowerDVD.  I tried running the DVD with VLC media, nothing happened. 


I read up online and tried various things.  I went to my device manager, found the CD/DVD drive and installed as the instructions said.  It then to restart and my laptop woul reinstall after restarting. 


But, now my CD/DVD has not been reinstalled at all and i'm at a loss how to get it back. 


I've tried reinstalling the media players, I've tried different disks, I've cleaned my DVD, cleaned the dvd drive port where I put the CD.


Is there any way I can fix it or is my DVD drive on my ideapad dead forever?

Re: CD/DVD drive no longer working

I have the same issue with my ideapad 330. I installed Office 2010 from CD. Since then all the updates associated with it have downloaded and I just uninstalled McAfee.

Windows 10 device info says it is working properly but it won't spin or read discs.
