ok well here since you dont know much about the driver i would suggest openning Control panel>System>Hardware>device manager> then find your cd rom try to update driver or check to see if it has any problems.

now if you feel re-installing the driver is nessesary then goto your devices manufacturers website and install a new driver. IMPORTANT: make sure you chose the correct model when you intall a new driver.

Best wishes :whistling:
