Default cd-rom not reading

i have a fairly new xps and for the past few days it hasn't been reading cds properly. ill have a cd in when i boot up and it has no problems recognizing the cd; however, whenever i change out with another cd, or dvd, it wont read this new one. i have to restart in order for it to read. the same problem occurs when there is no cd in and i try to put one in.
