edit: i tried this with some older CDs and it doesn't recognize them either... any help?

ive definitely watched DVDs on it, and im about 90% sure ive burned CDs on it before too.

when you say reboot, do you mean just turn it off/turn it back on again? or something different?

yeah, shut it down normally, then power it back up.

once logged on, try loading a cd again.
