Plug and Play

Not sure if this is the correct place to place my question but I will try. I have never had any problem with my cd/rw drive reading any disc I put in it. Now I can’t get it to read anything. Since this has started I have added a external dvd/rw and a internal dvd/cd rw. Any the strange part is not one of these drives will read anything. They will play and write if I enter them either thru the brouse on the run mode or go to my computer and click on the drive. I know there is probable some simple click some where but I sure don’t know where to go and I have gone into properiteis on all three of these drives and set up auto play? I hope, if you haven’t figured it out I am still a novice when it comes to the inner workings. Thanks for any advice anyone can give me
