Matshita UJ-8415 drive not working

I have an old Toshiba laptop (model M55S3293) that is becoming a back up computer. The DVD-ROM stopped working at some point. The Device Manager is showing that the DVD-ROM is a Matshita DVD-ROM uj-8415 and that the computer can't locate the driver.

XP, version 2002, SP-3

If there is an easy fix that I can do myself, great. If not, I can just reload the operating system.

Its been a great machine, and I have replaced it with a Mac Power Book. Still, it bothers me that this isn't working.

    Go into device manager, uninstall cd rom driver & reboot. Windows should install the driver. Then of course, you can always go to Toshiba, and download drivers for your computer model.
