Question about PC Desktops
Have you checked your connections, does it power on(refering to the drive meaning can u eject?). if yes then you might be having a software issue where the driver for your new drive is not installed yet therefore you OS does not know the drive is connected. on vista do your windows updates. on vista, go start, right click on computer, choose manage, device manager, at the top of the tree is the name of your unit. right click on it and choose scan. after scanning if you unit is an unknown device, it i will have a "?" mark on it. which means the driver has to be installed. in case you dont know any other ways to install drivers, but using ur cd drive, i want to let you know that there is always someone who put it online, or you can go to the manufacturer's website lookup support and find your hardware and download the drivers for it. After that you OS should work fine.
If all i said there did not solve your issues, then you have a bad connection, or your setup is wrong, open the computer again and redo your installation and get a professional to do the job. I am confident you can do it yourself, no need to pay extra box to get that done.
Return the one that does not work, get another one in case all my advices did not work.
