If this happens with any or all CDs/DVDs try this:

Right-click on 'Computer' in the start menu and select 'Manage.' After the manage window pops up, select 'Device Manager' on the left side of the window. Locate the category called 'DVD/CD-ROM drives' and expand it by clicking on the triangle to the left of the text. Right-click on the DVD drive in question and select 'Uninstall.'

Restart your computer and try again.

If that doesn't work and it still does this with any or all CDs/DVDs, your drive most likely needs to be replaced.

Law of Logical Argument: Anything is possible if you don't know what you're talking about.
