    My suggestion would be to uninstall the software for the virtual drive, then delete the drive from device manager.

    After a reboot I suspect your dvd drive will re-appear. Then you can re-install your virtual drive. If the same problem recurs use different virtual drive software.

    Have a look in event log to see what the actual error says.

    Try unplugging the drive, reboot & remove it from device manager (you will need to select view/show hidden devices), then plug the drive back in and reboot again.

    Depending on the error it could be faulty hardware (drive or motherboard) or a faulty driver.

    Next time, please start your own thread.

    Edit: nevermind, I just noticed that you did.
