Hi,

1. From Which operating system are you trying to upgrade to Windows 8.1?
2. Are you able to play other CD/DVD’s using the same drive?
3. What is the make and model of the computer?

Error code 5
Code 5 denotes that the driver for this device requested a resource that Windows does not know how to handle. If the issue is with the CD/DVD, then I would suggest you to upgrade the drivers for the CD/DVD from the manufacturer’s website.

a) Drag the mouse to bottom left corner and right-click on the ‘Start icon’.
b) Select ‘device manager’
c) In Device Manager, right-click on the ‘DVD/CD ROM Drivers.
d) Click ‘Uninstall’.
e) Follow the prompts to continue to uninstall the ‘Driver’.

Once uninstall restart the computer, then try to install the drivers from manufacturer’s website.
