Find a friend who has a cdrom that you know works, and stick it in to see. Did you change any settings or plugs before it stopped working? If it just stopped working on it's own, the it's probably the end of the line for it. It's always a good time to upgrade. :-)

ya lol who knows it is a gateway so.........
I had a creative Labs 12x DVDrom. And it started out doing stuff like that. Sometimes it would work and sometimes it wouldn't. It kept getting progressivly worse. Maybe you will get lucky and it won't happen again. But it may also be a sign that the end is near.
