piple, check that is has the most recent driver for your operating system.

It may just need a clean with a cleaning disc.

For around 30 quid you can get a new one. You can try removing it from Device Manager and then letting the system redetect (it shouldn't need driver per se). I take it that you have the CD-RW and DVD correctly set up as Master and Slave if they're on the same IDE? Failing this, if a clean doesn't work (and I have my doubts) save yourself the pain!
