You can remove the failed drive.

Since it's not used often, just remove it. Replace it when you find you have the time with a new drive.

Start the machine and enter the bios.
Does the cd drive react normal now.

If so I would not think it's a problem with the drive.
If it does the same thing while sitting in the bios, replace the drive.
