Yep ...that is odd that the XP/Vista isn't finding the 'new hardware' after a start up. Did you make a startup CD when you first got the laptop? The drive would be on there, then you can "add new hardware" without having the computer find it automatically. Did you call toshiba yet? If you can, see what the manufacturer's name of the cd rom.
There IS power going to it, so it could be a simple driver problem

Did it ever read from the CD drive or was it like this out of the box? I have had this before. There was a hair/dust on the lense of the laser...DO NOT use your fingers to clean it off. You must have a proper lense cloth to whipe it (cloth for eye glasses or micro fiber cloth for monitor screens, do not use any other cloth)
Get back to me with your answer.
