You need to delete the CD burner in Device Manager. Then go back to Control Panel and click Add Hardware to detect it again. Windows will find it and install basic drivers to get it going. Install factory software back on there.

you might have a bad cd burner on your hands. try installing the cd burner in another computer. if it reads cd-r's there, the cd burner still works, otherwise you might have to get a new burner.

if it doesn't read cdr's, reinstall drivers. if that doesn't work, contact the manufacturer. i had a problem like this iwht my DVD-rom drive. i reinstalled the drivers and it still wouldn't read DVD's...i contacted the manufacturer and turns out it was defective. they sent me a new one though
