Appropriate permissions query for CD/DVD

I am the only user of my laptop but when I try to open- left click on my CD/DVD drive I get Windows cannot access the specific device,path or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item.
If I right click then click on the play I get the same warning.
