Can't use/run CDs or games



I am using a Dell Inspiron 9300 Notebook laptop with a CD/DVD+/-RW Combo
Drive. When I put a CD/game into the drive, a small green light goes on near
the eject button. However, no content from the CD/game is shown. When I go
to My Computer, I can see the D: drive (the CD/DVD+/-RW Combo Drive), but it
is empty. I can play DVDs from the same drive without a problem.

I have run the Dell Diagnostics and passed all of the tests.

Does this mean that I need a new optical drive?

Thank you.

In the meantime I am going to attempt to clean the drive to see if that
