Drive reads DVD but not CD

    I recently upgraded my computer to a new hard disk and Windows XP.
    Someplace along the line (I have done a lot of work on the computer
    since then, so am not sure exactly when) the DVD/CD drive stopped
    working.

    Actually, it reads DVDs fine (data and movies) but does not recognize
    CDs (data or music), and says Windows does not recognize the format.

    The drive appears to be working (I switched drives with a colleague
    who experienced the same problem, and nothing changed). The Toshiba
    and IBM websites don't have any useful information that I can find,
    nor does a Google search.

    The drive is a Toshiba SD-C2512 and the computer is an IBM T23.

    Any ideas would be much appreciated!!!
