CD-Writer no longer worlking

The Munk

I have and old HP CD-Writer 8200 plus, and it worked ok before I put 10.1. Now it's not recognizing it...Does anyone know how I can remedy that? or is it not possible? Thanks.
damn...It's the USB one...those bastards had to thwart my cd writing. damnit, i hate when they screw me like that.
