Who is the manufacturer of your drive? Did you check for any firmware updates?
What is the status of the drive in Device Manager?
Perhaps, the drivers got corrupted. Go to the manufacturer's website and see if they have updated drivers. You can try a system restore or reinstall Windows if you're using a Windows driver.
If your drive is still under warranty you can exchange it. Sometimes, drives just become duds after some time or overuse.
I had an LG DVD-ROM suddenly stop reading CDs so I used it as an excuse to buy a Dual Layer Burner
