I would say, uninstall or roll back the drivers.

Or update to the most recent. I can't see a DVD drive going bad like that. We have had our DVD-RW/CD-RW combo and it works fine. Ripping and playing any DVD/CD.

on the link

Error 404--Not Found
From RFC 2068 Hypertext Transfer Protocol -- HTTP/1.1:
10.4.5 404 Not Found
The server has not found anything matching the Request-URI. No indication is given of whether the condition is temporary or permanent.

If the server does not wish to make this information available to the client, the status code 403 (Forbidden) can be used instead.
