ProLaint DL380 issue with CD drive reading the disc

I am setting up the Prolaint DL380 server with Windows 2000 Server. After installing the OS plus the SP4, the CD drive decided not to work. No matter what disc I put, I keeps asking to insert the disc into the drive. The drive try opens fine, it spins also. I noticed whenever there is a disc in the drive, the light will start to blink constantly. I went to DOS to tried to pull up the drive, but it said "device not ready". Please help. Thank you.

Hi.

Sounds like the CD drive is broken.
Maybe, if you are lucky, there is just some dirt on the lens.

Try cleaning the drive / the lens, then try to connect another cd drive to the server (it's a standard IDE) to see if anything else is working correctly.

HTH
