Why wont your cdrw and cd-rom work?

Question

my cd rom and my cdrw are hooked up, and when i go to device manager they are both said to be working correctly, but...Neither work at all. They are detected, but wont allow a disk to spin up and start. If i go to RUN and try to run my E or F drive, it says that the device is not ready. Any ideas of how to fix????
