Default windows not recognizing dvd/cd RW

windows isn't recognizing when i insert a disc, whether it be data, music or a blank cd.

i'm trying to burn a cd from itunes, and it tells me that there is no software or disc drive found.

i'm pretty sure it's not the drive, because i can reboot into linux and everything works just fine.

it's just weird, it worked just fine yesterday, and now nothing

when you go to the device manager, right click the ide drive, click uninstall and then reboot, windows will reinstall it for you.
