They are not listed in disk management? Go to bios and see it they are recognized there.

Did you recently install this CD drive?

Is it an ATA drive, if so, did you you put it on the same cable as the hard disk. If so, did you set the Master/Salve jumper correctly.

Some information on what disk drives you have and what type would be useful otherwise it is just guess work.
