It means that you cannot ad any more data to it, so to all intent and purposes it has 0 amount of bytes of free space

Reinstall it:

Go to start and right click on my computer then properties/hardware/device manager. Navigate to your CD player and right click and select uninstall.
Reboot your system and windows will locate it and reinstall it

also.. could be dust in the drive or dirty laser. If you have one, use a cd/dvd cleaner. If you don't - they're cheap as chips: http://tinyurl.com/6d2t42x

Can you right-click on the drive & see if you have a option that says Un-mount.
