hi brandon, i guess your dvd drive firmware needs to be upgraded.
if you are facing this issue since recently, try a system restore.

try the firmware update. If it doesnt work, probably do a system restore. Let us know the results.

Sometimes these drives just die. Don't forget that. It's possible that it's just crapped out and replacement might be the only option.

Also, have you adjusted BIOS settings for it? My DVD drive functions very differently under AHCI/Raid and "Native IDE" modes.

If you don't know where to find the BIOS options, it's highly unlikely you would have changed a setting that would be causing problem For future reference though, you can access the BIOS by pressing a key when you first turn it on. On my computer it is the delete key, and it can be many others (F1, F2, F5, F10, Enter are a few other examples I've seen)
