CD/DVD not working with XP desktop.

Please could someone advise me on the following problem; I have a desktop that is approximately 2 years old and has Windows XP installed, but I have just found out that the CD/DVD has stopped working. I have tried renewing the CD/DVD Player and installing AVS DVD playing software, but I still get nothing except a intermitant clicking sound for approximately 20 seconds to start with from the player and a tiny disc next to the curser arrow - then nothing happens. I have tried to source the link to 'D' drive, but all that happens is the message that there is 'no link' or 'link corrupted'. When I try to open the 'D' drive page - it is blank. Someone told me to reinstall Windows, but I can not do that, because the drive will not respond.
I would be grateful for any help.
Regards from Andrew.
