Yeah it does show up in device manager
I edited my post before I saw this. See this Microsoft link. It may help.

Your CD or DVD drive cannot read or write media

Thanks but i tried this earlier, just came up saying there wasn't any problems

That link that I provided a minute ago does download a file, download it save it to your desktop then run the .exe file, and see if that works

Are you choosing the bottom download link? Cause when I do it, it offers me a choise to either run or save.

This might sound daft but it is possible that you have some dirt on the lens, maybe if you have a cd/dvd cleaner that you could run and see if that helps.
