Benq DW1625 burner WONT read CDs/DVDs

I have an external Benq DVD DD DW1625 burner that I took out of its shell and placed it into my PC. The PC is recognizing the burner, but the burner is not reading ANY cds/dvds. I have upgraded all firmware, changed it from Slave to Master, and have updated the IDE controllers to no avail. Can someone please shed some light on this for me?
