Maybe nothing more than a faulty drive.

Drive try alignment out of sync.

Just give it a tug when its fully out then close and retry

Remove your DVD drive Burning software from Add Remove Programs, and all references in Windows Explorer then reload the software, it may work this way without going into regedit

You could also try right clicking the drive in my computer and choose close
