Try right clicking on the triangle and choose to update driver if you have the internet choose use internet this one time option, and see if it can find an updated driver.

Unplug pc from the mains and take the side panel of, check the cables are in correctly, also check the drive is set to the right jumper setting usually master.

Also check in the bios to see if you have raid capabilities, it would be worth disabling it. It is for hard drives not for removable devices.

CD/DVD no longer working


Go to device manager and see if the device has a yellow triangle with question mark next to the name of the device. If it does, then right click on it, go to properties and see if there is any type of error code. If there is an error code, then search for that code on microsoft's website.
