Before we assume it's malware related, you might just have a problem as simple as a missing or corrupt driver. Please go too the Start Menu, located in the lower left-hand corner of most screens. Then find the icon that says "My Computer". Right click it, and select "Manage". This will open up a window called "Computer Management." On the left-side pane, select "Device Manager." Now, somewhere near the top-left of the window, there should be a button that appears that wasn't there before. When you mouse over it, it should say "Scan for hardware changes." Please click that button.
Now, Find the option in the right pane that says "DVD/CD-ROM Drives." Click it, and tell us if there's any option there with a red X on it.
