Lite-on Combo CD/DVD Rom SOHC-5236K

I installed the subject hardware and my computer (HP Compaq DX2200) and have had problems booting up. I have tried bussing pins Master, Slave and Cable Sel at different times. I can get a DVD movie to play but I can't get the game 'Ratatouille' to download. I go to RUN and enter D:Install_Ratatouillle.exe and press enter. I get a message, 'D:Unavailable......' Right now my computer is operating at a snails pace. The DVD light is blinking and it won't open. I went in to BIOS and pressed F7, Return to Manufactures Defaults. I am in a quandry as what to do next. I was previously able to play a movie DVD on Media Player. Another problem has been that when the computer goes into hibernation it locks up and I have to press the on/off button for 5 sec to shut it down and restart it.
Any help would be appreciated.

It is not recommended to shut down your system by pressing the power button for 5 seconds. Its the same as unplugging your system, but i guess you don't have a choice. DVD players are quite troublesome. Some DVD players are picky to some CDs, or it could be that the disk may be scratched, or there may be dust in the lense of the player. About the CD not coming out of the drive, it could be a mechanism failure. Is the CD still in the drive? Turn off your PC, take a pin and insert it in the pinhole located in the DVD player. It is a manual eject button used to take off your CD during lockups. Your PC hanging up is because of the DVD.
