Edit you could try this fix but it requires some registry work... My cd drive wont work [Solved] - xpcman's post.
This did it!!!! Thank you soooo much. I came to find out that my friends teenage boys had tried to install Roxio, when it failed they tried to unistall and get rid of the evidence. Needless to say I chewed them out and they are now mowing my yard as me and thier Dad watch and drink a beer Thank you again, rep coming your way!

That's the famous upper and lower filters issue - been around for years.

Often caused by gigantic burning suites, like Nero and Roxio, apparently.
