    go and get a real driver. The driver for your CD Drive is missing or corrupt and Windows has relpaced it with a pile of garbage generic one. You need a real one. The one that is for your CD Drive.

    You don't need special drivers for CD drives. Generic ones allow you to read disks. Boot from a boot disk with CD-ROM drivers. If you still can't read anything from the drive, it's a hardware failure.
