Non responsive CD/DVD RW drive

When a CD/DVD is inserted the drive fails to run and when clicking on the icon for that drive in the My Computer window or using the Run function from the Start menu, it tells me to insert a disc into the drive. This should be a basic function but won't work and is driving me mad. Any suggestions? Thanks

try the following
in device manager
expand the
ide ata/sata controllers,
uninstall secondary ide channel and reboot
xp will find the channel on reboot
