If it reads DVD but not CD then its not looking good for the drive. The drive uses seperate lasers for each system. sounds like the CD laser / electronics kaput.

However things to try first

1. check the IDE cable is secure at the rear of the drive and at the motherboard end.

2. try another cable swap with the one used for your hard drives

3. Uninstall and reinstall the IDE channel the drive is on.

If these don't work then time to buy a new drive.
