To resolve this problem, remove the affected filter drivers. To do this, follow these steps:1. Click Start, type regedit in the Start Search box, and then click regedit in the Programs list.
If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type your password, or click Continue.
2. Locate, and then click the following registry subkey:
Caution There can be many instances of the registry subkey that is mentioned in step 2. You must make sure that you are in the appropriate registry subkey before modifying the UpperFilters and the LowerFilters values.

First thing I would do is go to My Computer or just Computer (under Vista) and see if drive exists. If it does show up it could be dirty and needs cleaning. If this doesn't help replace the drive. If it doesn't exist, Widows didn't see the drive at all and you need to pull it out and verify connections and possibly clean the connectors on DVD player. Plug it back in and Windows should say new drive found, if it doesn't I'd replace it.
