Toshiba M55-S331 will play DVD's but not CD's..

\015 My Toshiba M55-S331 will play DVD's but not CD's.. Further, I'm trying to use iTunes and it doesn't even recognize the CD drive. Normally I'd put in a CD and it would just start playing in iTunes, but I've already checked all the default settings and system checks and I still can't figure it out.\015
