Try an uninstall using Device Manager and then reboot.

If your driver is corrupt and you uninstall and reboot,then windows my re-install the corrupt driver.I had this problem with a freinds laptop last week.I did a restore to a point where the DVD/RW was working,copied the driver and installed it to the latest date.You could try a restore to when they were working,and leave it there,if you have no programmes installed since that date
