go to device manager and right click it.

select uninstall and restart the computer.

windows will reinstall it on starting up again.

no you dont need any software or drivers etc.

windows has its own built in.

You don't say exactly what is wrong with your CD, so I can only assume it just isn't being seen by your OS. yOu should be safe doing as huggyg71 suggests as your OS will have the drivers necessary to get your CD working as CD-ROM. You should have got software with the hardware to run as CD-RW - your current installation should work, but, if not, you will have to re-install these as well.
