Synaptic can't find CD ROM drive

After installing Ubuntu 8.04 on one of my machines, I added another HDD. Now Synaptic Package Manager can't find the CD in the CD ROM. It isn't even looking at the drive (the light doesn't even light up). I think it's looking at the other HDD instead. Is there a .conf file for synaptic or do I need to tweak something else?
