Hi everyone,
For a workstation we are trying to hook up a new DVD-Drive into a computer. We replaced it for $20 thinking the old one was dead, but this new one isn't picking up now either. So we opened up BIOS and see that IDE is enabled, not AHCI. Could this be the reason that the drive is not responding? It won't open up during boot up or be recognized after booting up into Windows either.

Any ideas? I have tried a different SATA port too but it's not picking up.
Thanks,

What about a different SATA cable with a different port. Is the drive detected in the BIOS's boot order?

Yes, or is the power cable plugged into the drive securely?
