dvd-rw can't detect any disc

hi, today i just found my dvd-rw drive failing to detect any kind of discs(cds or dvds). if any disc is inserted into the drive the drive led blinks only for two times and then there is no response from it just like no disk. the bios and windows are detecting the drive fine and there is no driver conflict too. i've tried unplugging and plugging the power and mobo cables. but no hope. please help.

Try to boot to a cd or bootable dvd from power off with bios set to cd/dvd first boot.
