Go to START-->CONTROL PANEL and double click ADD NEW HARDWARE. See if windows detects it.

Can you still open the CD tray but pushing the button?

*EDIT* -- Also, does the BIOS still detect the CD-DRIVE and can you put a bootable CD in like your XP installation cd and you are able to boot from it by pressing any key when asked?
