Default dvd-rw drive won't read cds


My CD-R/DVD-RW drive will not read audio CDs or blank CD-Rs, but still reads DVDs (including burned DVDs). The problem did not start until I accidentally pressed the eject button while my computer was in the middle of burning an audio CD. Now when I put in a CD or CD-R, the drive repeatedly makes a clicking noise until it eventually gives up and my computer says there's no disc in the drive. The device manager says the drive is working properly, and I tried uninstalling and re-installing it. Any ideas? Thanks!
