Go to your Device Manage and see if there is a yellow ? or ! sign next to the CD ROM, CD R/W drive, click the box with the sign, when the CD ROM, CD R/W drive expands right click it and then click properties, in the Properties Window click Drives when this opens up you could either do a Driver update or a Driver Roll Back and see if this will solve the problem If this does not work then uninstall and reinstall the driver and see if this will help.
