check device manager to make sure correct drivers are installed

Adding to what caperjack said about device manager, make sure there are no yellow exclamation marks or red X besides the name of the drivers.

could also be the drive itself, and sometimes but rare if on that machine a disk is put in that it cant read (blue ray etc ) then it hangs and you need to follow the above advice re reinstalling drivers etc;

If the problem is with the drive and not the drivers and CD itself, you can always buy a new CD drive and replace it yourself. It is very easy as there is only 1 to 2 screws.
