Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

It is possible that the media being read is broken or defective. Try using a known working media, one that another optical drive has been verified to read. You can also try using a different optical drive if there is one available. If that works, then your optical drive needs replacement.

If that doesn't work, then it may be a problem with the operating system itself. Try using a bootable disc. One example would be the Windows installation CD/DVD or any other media that can load itself without the operating system. If it loads outside the operating system, then that means the problem is with your operating system. Try deleting upper and lower filters from the system registry.

Otherwise reinstall Windows.
