LiteOn LTR-40125S not recognised in windows XP

hi Can somebody please help me. Windows XP does not seem to recognise my LiteOn LTR-40125S. I did manage to get it working but it comes up as a scsi device but soon as you reboot its not their at all in device manager. I have a gigabyte ga-7zxr raid motherboard and the cd writer its on its own IDE channel. Any ideas would be appreciated. thank you

maybe you should post in the hardware forum, but did you make sure to set the jumper correctly on the drive? and is it being recognized in the bios. if it is seen in the bios then it is a software issue if it is not shown in the bios then it is a hardware issue.
