Computer can't read blank CD-r/rw but can read DVD-R


Im a NEWBIE and don't know much about cd drives and burning.

I purchased an emachines t5026. I have not replaced the drives. There are two drives. In the my computer folder it says the e drive is a dvd-rw drive and the F drive says cd drive. The e drive can read and write dvds but cannot recognize cds. The f drive recognizes cds but cannot recognize dvds. Niether drive can read a blank CD-r/rw. The cds can be read on other computers. I am trying to burn a data cd for one of my classes. Can anyonw help me resolve this issue. I don't know much about the technicalities of the drives or what type of models these drives are. I have nero 7.0. Can someone please help me?
