    On Device Manger:
    Right Click (The specific DVD/CD-ROM Drive) > Uninstall > Re-start the PC.

    The drive will be reinstalled correctly and automatically, as soon the PC is back on.


    Also check:
    Start > My Documents > Downloads || ...etc.

    Looking for & delete folders that use a bunch of numbers as a name (you can safely open those files & see they are no pics; just crap.) corrupting your CD/DVD Drives &/or PC.


    Good luck.
