Your referring to your CDROM drive or DVD drive? Unfortunately these drives can die without warning. It could be due to dirt build-up on the optical lens which can be cleaned using a Lens Cleaning CD available in computer shops and some supermarkets. I think it's more likely some of the electronics has died in which case you will need to replace the CD/DVD drive. They are really cheap now and replacement is easy. Post back if you want help doing that.
(BTW - the computer case is not the hard drive, the hard drive is just one component inside the case).
