^ did you forget a disk in the drive ;) ...check its data cable . if it is not the culpritthen your drive / interfacing card developeda fault . and fixing required by a technician .

Three things that may help you:#1) A CD drive lens cleaner (available for around Rs. 100 from any decent music store).#2) Totally uninstlaling the drivers for the drive and then reinstalling it.#3) Not writing in ALLCAPS. Seriously, don't be annoying.

Check event log (start > run > eventvwr.msc) for hardware related errors...
