If you dont know how to system restore (and im not saying you dont), control panel-> search "system restore"
Could also be a windows update that couldve have messed mine and yours up as well, but i dont get many things relating to "cd drives or removable media" from windows update. so if all else fails, then you may have to do what i did and reinstall your OS.
But try (if you can a different CD drive) and try to search the web for a registry fix thats known to possibly cause it to stop working.
