Select what operating system you have (xp or vista) then scroll down to where it says "CD/DVD" and choose your specific cd-rom drive model.

Download the firmware and run it. It should function after that.

(Also if you don't know your Cd-Rom drive model, right click on My Computer> Properties> Hardware Tab> Device Manager> Scroll down to DVD/CD-ROM drives and check out the model number.) Hope this helps! :)
