Bring up the command line and type in "dmesg | more" without the quotes and scan through for cdrom related errors. A normal output should look similar to this :

[ 1.102817] scsi 0:0:0:0: Direct-Access ATA WDC WD400JD-75HK 14.0 PQ: 0 ANSI: 5
[ 1.102996] sd 0:0:0:0: [sda] 78125000 512-byte logical blocks: (40.0 GB/37.2 GiB)
[ 1.103037] sd 0:0:0:0: Attached scsi generic sg0 type 0

[ 1.103150] sd 0:0:0:0: [sda] Write cache: enabled, read cache: enabled, doesn't support DPO or FUA
[ 1.103421] sda:
