CD drive

I have a problem with my Sony VAIO laptop
When I load a CD into the CD drive it shows a disc loaded in My Computer, but when I go down a level into the CD no files are shown on the disc. If I load the disc in another computer the files are there. The VAIO used to show files on the CD drive. Not sure why it has changed. Can anyone suggest how to fix it. Thanks

Could be that the laser has gone kaput.

However, try Uninstalling the drive in Device Manager and then Rebooting; Windows should Find New Hardware and reinstall the basic CDROM driver (all that is required).
