Odd. Try uninstalling the driver and letting Windows install it again.

Best idea yet, or you could use a heavy duty USB optical drive.

Despite how vague everything in this thread is, that is actually a good idea. Assuming XP or later, buy, borrow, or steal, a simple USB CD-drive and try that instead. If it works, then that narrows down the issue to the drive. If it doesn't then it is probably a disk or file system problem.
