Hi there to troubleshoot this..First analyze these things..
1)If the CD is not ejecting then the powercable(It has four thin powersupply wires) is loose or screwed..Just unlug it and plug it back in and see if it ejects if it doesn't then you may have to replace it..
2)If the CD drive is ejecting but not working then its a IDE cable issue..Just unplug and plug it back in(Looks like a fat ribbon)
If after trying both of these still if it wont work then you either did no install the driver or the its lens is damaged..
Good luck!

Hello there!
Your burner can't recognize CD.
