Have you tried different CDs/DVDs or tried the same CD/DVD in a different computer or DVD player? It's possible that the disc has become corrupt or is in a file format not recognizable by Windows. Otherwise it sounds like a driver error or something wrong with your disk drive.

DVD-RW rom was working fine before the upgrade...in fact i had to use the drive to boot from for the installation of windows.

So the problem has developed recently but you installed Windows with it? Try this first, just check that it says it will fix what you need it to fix:
http://support.microsoft.com/mats/c...

If that doesn't work goto: Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Administrative Tools on your computer and open Computer Management. On the left hand column click Device Manager. Open the DVD/CD-ROM Drives category and right click the name of your drive. If it gives the option to enable, click it, if not click Scan for hardware changes. You may have to reboot to get it to work.

Hopefully this works.

You are not alone with this problem. If you Google Optiarc AD-7530B ATA, you will get tons of hits with people having the same issue after upgrading to Windows 7.

It will probably require a firmware update but unfortunately there are none available. You might just be better off going and getting a new drive.
