Tell us your specific model number.

You don't need specific drivers for your CD drive unless it's really old, as in more than about 15 years old. - in most cases Windows installs generic drivers automatically.

Look in Device Manager.
E.g. RIGHT click on My Computer - Properties - Hardware - Device Manager

Does it show up listed under DVD / CD-rom drives ?
Is there NO yellow ! or red X beside it ?

If yes to both, the drivers are working fine - see the folowing:

Hi Barry, have you tried cleaning the drive?

Here in the UK a cleaning disk with fluid costs £1 in a cheapo store.

Is the drive failing to read all disks or just one?

If one:-
does the disk read ok on another pc?

is it a dvd? - if so, will not read on a cd drive

Please advise back on progress.

Good Luck - Keep us posted.
