Do you have all the correct drivers for them? What types of CD/DVD's are you trying to read?

in order to play DVDs on a DVD drive, you must first install a DVD decoder. You might have to purchase this, its a peice of software. Secondly is your CD drive a burner or just a CD drive? Some CD burners will only support certain formats and brands of disk.
