Have a look on google for "upper/ lower filters" problems with CD/DVD drives.
THere is a quick solution that worked for me. YOu have to mess around with the windows registry though. So there is potential for something to go wrong. But as mentioned it worked for me. DVD drvie is working perfectly again.
You may have to re-install any programs that use the drive after you have made the change.
