after i insert a cd/dvd and close the player i can hear it start but the player stops and beeps. it proceeds to do this over and over again.
 
Some questions.
1) Did the player ever work?
2) Can you reseat cables / connectors and try again? (is it in a notebook or tower machine?)
3) A rare solution: is the disk upside-down? Seriously, there was a poster with a slot drive which had been installed upside-down. Putting the disks in the other way solved the problem.
4) These drives fail. It may need to be replaced.
