On Win Xp, and hopefully something similar on Win 7, from the Control Panel access the hardware menu. Go to the Device Manager, click on it. Look at the list of hardware devices, find your CD/DVD, click on the [+] to expand it. RIGHT click on the description of your hardware, then select uninstall. This disassociates that piece of hardware with your system. Reboot and it find "new" hardware and look for the driver and reinstall it.

That is for Win Xp. If you can't figure it out for Win 7 maybe someone else here can help you.

Oh, and geez dude, you shoulda got an Apple.
