    Yer fine. Run the fix: http://support.microsoft.com/mats/cd_dvd_drive_pro...

    If that doesn't work you may simply need to blow some compressed canned air in it to clean dust out or it may just need replaced. They are easy to replace and not expensive to buy (for a desktop computer that is).
