    More than "it doesn't work" is needed for someone to help you.

    Did it work at one time and now does not? or has it never worked in Win 8? Does it just not read discs? or is it the drive drawer does not open? What is the status of the drive in the Device Manager? Does it show working OK or does it show an error code (and what is the code)?

    Try this (1):

    Your CD drive or DVD drive is missing or is not recognized by Windows or other programs

    The CD drive or the DVD drive does not work as expected on a computer that is running Windows Vista

    Try this(2):
    1) Shut down PC.
    2) Physically disconnect the CD/DVD Drive.
    3) Reboot to Windows with NO DVD drive.
    4) Shut down PC.
    5) Physically reconnect the CD/DVD Drive.
    6) Reboot to Windows with DVD drive.
    7) Check Device status.
