You should do/check the followed things:

[ul]
[li]Check the BIOS if the drive is detected, depending on your PC/board manufacturer the connected drive should be displayed during init of your PC.
[/li]
[li]Check the cables (SATA and power) if they are really compete plugged, you can unplug and plug the cable again to be sure.
[/li]
[li]Change your SATA cable to be sure the cable is ok, you can also use an other power connector if you still have an unused SATA power connector
[/li]
[li]Use an other SATA port in case the SATA port is not working correctly
[/li]
[li]Check your drive in an other PC to be sure the drive is not broken
[/li][/ul]

I had the same problem. I saw the errorcode 39, and by searching on it I found what seemed to be an answer on www.pchell.com web site.(pchell.com/hardware/cd_drive_error_code_39.shtml is the precise location)
Basically it meant a simple registry amendment:
I don’t like fiddling with the registry but it was simple enough and the drive now works.
