After  gettiing my imac back from Apple (replaced a bad hard drive), my imac no longer sees my optical disk drive (cd/dvd/cd-rom drive.  What can I do to get it back?  I cannot load the hardware test disk because it doesn't know it is there. 


Please help me!@


Should this be covered under the replacement drive installation?

iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.8)
