Windows cannot read CD ROM drive, driver work

Specs: Windows XP
My DVD Drive cannot be accessed by windows when I try to insert a disk containing software. It pops-up the message insert disk into drive F or pops-up drive not accessible. I have another application Wavelab 6 that can access the drive, write it and read it by playing the music I recorded with that software. After that I can go into a windows application like media player, and it still plays the disk. So the driver is healthy and the hardware also. Once I take the disk out ouf the drive and insert one that windows needs to read to install a software, windows block the access to that drive. I looks to me like a virus has taken control of windows and prevents the access to that drive. Any help is highly appreciated.
