I'm trying to fix the CD drive on my friend's computer. He's running Windows XP. The problem is that the CD-RW won't read CDs. I can put one in the drive but it won't recognize that there's a disc in there at all. The drive shows up in My Computer and all the cables connecting the drive to the motherboard/power supply are seated.

I got it to work ONCE, when installing AOL (I know, I know, but that's only temporary, I hope). But it just won't read anything now. Anyone know how to troubleshoot this? (I hope he doesn't have to buy another drive.)

Or if you don't know the answer to that one...

What, in your experience, has made life awesome?
