Sounds like your drive didn’t install properly. First of all did you set the jumpers to the proper position on the back of the drive? IE: Master or Slave position. If the jumpers are set correctly and you are running Windows(you didn’t say which version) go tho the device manager under ATA/ATAPI controllers and uninstall the IDE channel that has your DVD and CD-ROM drive on it(probably the Secondary IDE channel) Reboot your machine and Windows should reinstall the drives properly. Hope this helps. Let us know.
