how many cdroms do you have? if only that one. You can try to use a bootable cd. perhaps a windows cd to see if it will let you boot to the cd. if it lets you then you prob. have software curruption if not than most likely you have a bad drive.

Looks like it may be time for you to get a new CDROM. I think my friend had a similiar problem as you. Bought a new one and problem fixed.
