Try a different disk and see if that works, if not try cleaning the drive with a CD cleaning disk, about a fiver if you don't already have one and they can be used on your hifi too.

A "try this first" remedy:-

In control panel > system > hardware, right click on the CDrom, and remove this device.

After rebooting Windows should re-install the CDROM and all should be well :)
