    Eject the disc
    Close "My Computer"

    Download CCleaner and run it fully

    Re-open "My Computer" and check again

    If CCleaner doesn't work, try reinstalling the operating system fresh

    Remove the CD/DVD drive(s) from Device Manager (Start -> Run -> devmgmt.msc)

    Just click on the + sign on the DVD drives, then right click on your drive and select uninstall.
    Restart your computer, the drive(s) will be found and setup automatically
