    What would cause a CD drive not to run? The drive is recognized under My Computer but when I try to use the Run function, it keeps telling me to insert the CD, which is already inserted.

    In your device manager, right click on your burner, and click "Uninstall". After it uninstalls, reboot, and let Windows detect new hardware, and install a new driver for you.
    Good luck!

    And if that does not work, and no CD's are recoginsed by the drive, you need to consider that the laser in the drive may have failed.
