1st question... does the cd-rw recognizes (read) standard cd's... if so it just a driver prob.. if not then find the incidence of the device in the Device manager, delete it and restart thecomputer. Also.. you may go to the dell website and re install any available driver. One last measure... rare but sometimes the connection are loose and not seated properly..
Turn off the computer, unplug, open case push on ALL the connectors and are seated..(including memory)....
If all that fails then its a bad drive... also rare but a lot more common with mass produced comp. It may still be under warranty and at worst ;you may have to pay ship and handling.
pleas email and notify fixya if this helps.

you problem is most likely that your bios is out of date. download the latest bios updates for your motherboard and then when you install windows format you HDD with the ntfs system (using the long formatt system not the quick format). Then you should install the bios update. then your mboard shoud no longer have the problem of recognising your large capacity HDD. thanks

Check your BIOS. There's a setting there to change the Drive controller which allows the SATA drive to be recognized. I believe when I did it I had to change the RAID setting (even though I wasn't using RAID).
