Go to your Device Manager, then delete the dvd drive from the list, reboot, and Windows should reinstall default drivers for it.

Try this:

Open the Registry, make sure to backup the registry before making any changes to it
Navigate to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class
Find the Key: {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
Delete All Value Data from UpperFilters and LowerFilters. Do not delete the Key or the Multi-String Values. Delete only the data values.
Exit Registry and Reboot

Sometimes, when removing a CD/DVD-related programs (also reported when upgrading to SP1 or SP2 and even for no apparent reason) this problem occurs. As to what, exactly, the problem is I'm not sure.
