More Slimcombo LSC 24082k Problems

I am using Windows XP Professional 5.1.2600 Service pack 2 Build 2600 on a Prestigio laptop with CD RW/DVD Slimcombo LSC 24082k dirve. Using nero V6.3 I burned a few discs and after that the drive would not read any CDs (data or music) but it did play DVDs for a few times. Now it will not read any discs. It searches the disc for about 5 secs and then ejects the disc.
I uninstalled Nero, did restores, deleted lower filters (there was no upper filter) as recommended in one answer,
uninstalled and re-installed the driver and uninstalled Service pack 2. No luck!

Does anyone have any more suggestions? It appears to be a very difficult problem to solve.
Thanks

clean the driver with a CD/DVD drive cleaning kit.

If that doesn't work, then you need to replace the drive.

Can you boot the PC using a bootable CD and bootable DVD using that drive? If that works it isn't a hardware problem.

If it is a standard XP CD, then it is bootable. Otherwise get the UBCD or Knoppix or something in that range.
