go in to device manager and click on cd/dvd to c if there are any drives if there is but there is a yellow triagle with and explanation mark there try reenstalling the drivers by right clicking on them , 2nd go to control panel and select add hardware , if no luck again try getting into your bios to c if there being reconised in there , let me know how u get on

restart go in to the bios (normaly [DEL] or [F2]) and see if the cd drive is seen there if not check that all the leads are secure if no joy you can try swapping the power connectors between drives as there may be a faulty psu output
worth a try hope you sort it
