Question about Televison & Video
Hi usually when the light stays on this means the cable is the wrong way round the same problem occures when you get the floppy drive lead the wrong way round.
If the dvd drive came out of a working computer then the jumper settings were probably correct if the cable can go the other way round try that.
The only other problem you can have is are you building an ibm compatible computer if you are is the dvd ibm compatible if this is also not the problem then the chances are the dvd drive is damaged.
Do you have a normal cd drive in and working if you do try using it in the place of this if this still dont work then i would say the unit is dammaged.
check the leads not damaged but what you are explaining sounds like the lead is wrong way round let me know how you get on ok

Locate the CD-ROM drive door on your computer. The location of the drive depends on the computer you have. You will see a small rectangular button on the door.
Press the button and the drive door should slightly open. Lightly pull the door open and insert the blank DVD-RW disc into the drive. Close the drive door and wait for the computer to detect the disc, which will trigger an "Auto Play" screen to flash on the desktop's taskbar. The screen will prompt you to choose an action you'd like to perform for the disc.
Click "Burn Files to Disc: Using Windows." This link will redirect you to your Windows Explorer disc burning application. You will be prompted to enter a title for the disc.
Enter the title of your choice in the form and click "Next." The last screen will ask if you'd like to continue with the formatting; click "Yes" to continue. The "Elapsed Time" screen will appear indicating how long the process will take. When the process is complete, another screen will automatically appear indicating the formatting process is complete.
Click "OK" to continue. Your Windows Explorer panel will appear. In the upper-left corner of the panel, you will see a horizontal menu bar with different options for the disc. Now your disc is formatted and you can begin burning files to your disc.
Have a nice Day,
