Can't play CDs or DVDs In Laptop Answered

When I insert a CD, DVD, software disc, etc, into the tray, I hear a couple of beeps, a fast whirring sound that then stops. No playback happens even set to auto play. No little disc icon appears on screen. I'm unsure if the drive ever worked, but I assume it did when I installed disc that came with my latest printer. Trouble shooting via Windows help & support led me to find drive in Device Manager for repair/update.***I find no listing for a CD/DVD drive there or in sounds section on control panel***I have Compaq F700 notebook running Windows Vista Home Premium. Programs list show 2 DVD players in addition to Windows Media Player. No luck with any of them. (One shows"No Disc" even after disc is inserted). Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
