Question Mandrake 9.1, thinks floppy is cd

I ahve installed linux on my first attempt to build a comp. As you can imagine, i have come across many problems, one of these is when i try to open the cd drive, it syas it cant acces mnt/cdrom and when i try to play a music cd, the floppy drive spins, but the cd doesn not. When i installed, it know the cd rom drive was a cd drive, but now it doesn't, any suggestions????
-thanks, greenpenguin
