    use Device Manager to reinstall the drive and then try again :

    • select Start , and enter "device manager "
    • select the plus sign (+ ) next to DVD/CD-ROM Drives .
    • If DVD/CD-ROM Drives is not in the list, skip to Step 2 to reset power or reseat the drive cables if necessary.
    • click on the drive name, select the uninstall button,
    • then Scan for Hardware changes ,
    • when hardware installation done, the drive name should appear in a Windows message and in Device Manager.

    There might be chance of some power supply problem as due to some conditions certain writing conditions lose communication with Windows and peripherals even after restarting Windows that not works .So To reset the drive Shut down it from the power menu. Wait for few min go for full power off then restart it again
