Answers :

Go to My computer, Right click on CD/DVD Drive, Properties, on top click on "Auto Play", check "Select an action to perform".
From drop down menu pick:"DVD movie"
Click:"Assign actions" and pick any movie player you want to play DVD. Click "Apply" at the bottom
Go to safemode and try reading CDs in safemode. If your burner still can't read CDs then it's most likely bad. You could get an external usb burner.
