CD Drive wont recognize on Laptop-Help please!

  bob dob 11:26 20 Mar 2011

Hi, im using Ashampoo and am trying to burn an audio CD but i cant get the option to 'write', the blank CDs im using in either my internal CD/DVD drive or my external CD/DVD drive.
Infact, when i put a DVD or CD in either, they aren't recognised although when i plugged the external drive in i get a message showing it is connected and ready to use.
Please can anyone help?

If you select computer from the start menu does the CD drive show up there... it should. If not, if you do a restart does it appear ?

What's the operating system and laptop ?

Has this problem only started with Ashampoo (which I use) or not.
