    DVD Drive not automatically reading discs


    Hey guys, I've just been encountering a weird problem with my computers LG Blu-ray drive lately. I'll put in a disc, the light on the front will flash twice and nothing will happen. But if I open the 'My Computer' page on the desktop, the drive will show up as empty for a few seconds, and then the drive will start reading the disc like something is manually triggering it. This issue goes away after I restart my computer, but it will occur again after resuming from sleep and will occasionally occur after booting the computer up after shutting it down. Any ideas?
