Try to clean the lenses using a soft cloth.
Also check the connections of the CD Drive.
Also check in contro panel>device manager wether you have a CD Rom drive over there or not. (Mostly if its not there then connections are loose)
In most of the cases connections are loose. And even after that cleaning the lenses if the CD Rom dosent read then may be there is some problem inside the CD Rom assembly or its broken. You will have to get it repaired.

Relatd to slow working


These are two different problems...
1. most likely you have loaded too many programmes in the startup...uninstall the unwanted programmes...and clean the registry by registry cleaner.... clean your c drive or the drive in which OS is loaded by system tool...disc cleanup (in accessories)

2. increase your RAM if you still want to use all the programmes you have loaded.

3. Use a cd rom cleaner disc to see it the rom stars reading...or else you will have to replace the CD Rom

Recovery


this is a READ error known as a CYCLIC REDUNDANCY READ ERROR.
If the CD ROM is not able to read from the disc .. it gives u this error
This can come due to many reasons
1. OLD CD ROM - not able to read data properly
2. CD with lot of scratches
3. CD not written properly: Data not burn properly on CD at the time of its make.

Solution: Try to insert a new CD in it and then check whether it works or not
or get a CD LENS CLEANER DISC which will remove any kind of small debris on the lens on the CD ROM and then it will work.
This would surely help
