Will the drive read a commercial CD? Is it just ones that you burned that it will not read?

Barring a hardware failure in the drive (and this is possible), or an error code for the drive in the Device Manager, go to the Device Manager, RIGHT click the entry for the drive and then LEFT click "uninstall" (DO NOT click the box to uninstall the drivers). Then restart the PC and when Windows starts it will detect and reinstall the drive. If there was a Windows status corruption this will fix it.
