When I insert a DVD into my DVD drive, the laptop keeps spinning it like it is trying to read it but it never stops spinning it and it never is able to read it.

"never is able to read it"
Is that all DVD's?

If yes, clean the drive & lens.

Always worth cleaning the lens as suggested but it might turn out to be new drive time.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Also, is this with a disk that you have accessed before? Blank disk?

Try booting from a bootable cd or dvd. That way you'll know if it's a windows issue or a problem with the drive.

@SteveBlanch

- Check Connections and connectors (Specially in laptops).
- CD/DVD Damaged (Normal event).

Good Luck.
