    Actually, my case --
    "the DVD drive won't recognize that there is a disc in the drive"
    is quite common like
    http://club.cdfreaks.com/showthread.php?t=148307
    or
    http://www.digit-life.com/forum/0003/000237-2.html

    No one can solve their problems, but I know what's going on!
    It is quite possible that the motherboard ODD(DVD)
    Firmware need to be updated.

    My DVD("SAMSUNG DVD-ROM SD-612") worked fine under
    Windows XP and its SP1 but
    "the DVD drive won't recognize that there is a disc in the drive"
    since Windows XP Service Pack 2 had been installed.

    (There is only one Driver associated with this DVD, so there is no way
    I can roll back driver and SAMSUNG ODD Firmware LiveUpdate did not
    support this product but it worked for original Windows XP and SP1.)

    Let me list the detailed cue below:

    The Driver files
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\cdrom.sys
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\imapi.sys
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\redbook.sys
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\storprop.dll

    Associated with the DVD/CD-ROM drivers
    (You can check them from "Driver Details..." button at Driver tab under
    "SAMSUNG DVD-ROM SD-612" Properties from Device Manager)
    had been updated as
    5.1.2600.2180 (xpsp_sp2_rtm.040803-2158)
    By
    Windows XP Service Pack 2
    (Monday, September 13, 2004 Windows Update)

    I guess that (xpsp_sp2_rtm.040803-2158) refered date 08/03/2004

    Do you have any way to rollback those 4 Microsoft driver files and
    keep Windows XP Service Pack 2
    or any other solution to avoid :
    "Please insert a disk into drive D:"(deive D: is my DVD)
    when I click on drive D:
    or
    it showed "the device is not ready." when I typed "dir d:"
    at CMD prompt(I do have inserted CD in the drive).
