the pins on the drive itself where the cable plugs in--it happens--if you are carefull you might be able to straighten a bent pin or pull a retracted pin out...having the drive improperly jumpered or cabled can throw that error (though usually not with CD/ DVD drives) check that you have it jumpered to match the location on the cabling--i.e master if plugged in to end connector, slave if plugged to middle, you cannot have two master or two slave drives on one ata bus...
