Tell us your specific model number.

How to Locate Your 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.
