Depend on what you have in your system already. If your are replacing and existing drive simply remove it, and replace on the same IDE cable making sure the jumper is set to slave. Assuming you have one drive to the 0-IDE connector and the other connector is is to existing CD and this new drive is to be a second one. You will need another IDE ribbon cable. Set the drive to Master- connect the cale. position and fix the drive and plug the other end on the cable to the second IDE connector [Drive 01] See you mother board manual - connected a spere power connector.

Unless you would succeed with other cd's from another manufacturer or updating the firmware , your drive is defective and is probably not worth reparing .

Try to plug it to other USB port of your PC I recommend you plug it at the USB port at the back of your CPU..If this doesn't solve the problem try to clean your DVD drive lenses with a DVD cleaning disc..Still if this doesn't solve the problem perhaps you'll need to contact a technician or for worse buy a new external DVD..Hope it will help you..
