I would suspect that the "Read" portion of the drive is no longer working. You could try using a CD-ROM cleaner disk that has a small brush on it for cleaning the laser lens and if that doesn't work, I'd get a new CD drive. CD-ROMs are very inexpensive these days - almost as cheap as a floppy drive, and if you need any help in its installation, just post.
