Try swapping a known good CDROM drive into it. First thing to do is determine whether it's hardware or Windows related. Probably a drive failure.

The good news is that if it is the cdrom, they are dirt cheap now a days. The switch or eye that checks if a cd is in is likely stuck or dirty. A quick blast with some canned air might help. If it is anything more serious you might as well get a new one for as cheap as they are. Cdroms are like 16 bucks, nice 16x dvds are $30 and nice burners are under $50. Heck you can get a DVD burner for under $100 these days.
