All of a sudden my DVD wont read disks.
It's an ASUS DRW-1608P3S

I put a disk in then about 3 sec later it ejects.
It is showing with no errors in Device Manager, and in Windows Explorer.

I tried reinstalling drivers - that didn't work.

I tried to run Mats_Run.dvd.exe (http://support.microsoft.com/gp/cd_dvd_drive_problems) but I get error message:
"Fix it troubleshooting cannot continue because an error occurred. We're sorry, but the diagnostic solution encountered a runtime error."

Any ideas?

Hello and welcome to Bleepingcomputer.

Basically how old is this drive? How long have you been using it flawlessly?

Usually when a drive ejects a CD or DVD it is because either someone is trying to copy a copy protected disk, or there is something jammed inside the drive.

Depending on the age of your drive, if it is at least 2 years old or older it may be failing.
