My Dvd Drive E: seems to almost not work. It will not recognize blank discs in the tray, but it will try to spin it. I recently had to do a factory reset so is there something i may have to do?

I have Windows XP.

I don't think that is the problem.

I do IT tech support for a living. I get paid good money to do so.

Seriously, most "Drive cannot read disc(s)" issues indicate a drive on it's last legs. You could try a lense cleaner, but the results are variable with these things.

This is my credible advice. Take it or leave it. Either way, I hope you get it sorted!

I'm off to bed now, so I shaln't post any more in here! Goodnight, and good luck!

Granted it's UK prices, but that's about $30 for you mate!
