Take it out and pop it back in again, see if that sorts it.

Definately reseat the drive as suggested by Alfonse

if u have knocked it you could of just knocked out the data cable going into it.... a nice moto i use for computers when building them is " if in doubt, give it a clout"

works moat times!

or could be hardware issues with the cd drive

Check in system properties and see what error it gives
