Difficult to say what the problem could be but not Driver Related .. Read the Link below some suggestions there ...

Why doesn't my CD or DVD drive work?

See if you can boot from CD. If not, then the drive is no good

That's not a bad suggestion, but it was working before...

Curious issue nonetheless, and my only suggestion would be to see if he can read/write to other CD's/DVD's, but than again, the OP said he did that....

Of course, it was working before. When do you mean?

Point is to see if it is STILL working and can boot from a CD.
> If not, the CD died. And OP needs a new one
> If it can, then it's a software issue that occurred during the installation. And no point in buying a new one (yet)

Strange things can happen a few years ago i got a Lenovo g500 .. It worked perfectly one day i tried to play a DVD the drive spun lights flickered but would not play .. Thinking it was the Media tried others to no avail no matter what i tried it would not play any media ... I forgot about the DVD in the Drive when i booted the next day it brought up the list to play when Windows had loaded ... That Drive still works but only from boot ..

Well when I read his post I assumed he meant very recently... like the drive suddenly quit working right after the Windows 7 install from the CD.

That said, I can only comment on what's posted. It's not like I'm sitting right there. And its kind of strange the CD/DVD drive would suddenly go dead like that.

That's what I mean

Just a little note:
The Windows 8 drivers may or man not work in Windows 7.

From post # 1.

recently I had windows 8 on my laptop. so I wanted to format my laptop and install windows 7 on it.
what i did is that i backed up drivers using some software, then did the format.
If your CD/DVD player is working I would do a Clean Install and let Windows 7 install the needed drivers.

I'm no expert on this but I found a couple.
