I'm not sure if you've already done these things or not, but this is what I would do:
Reboot and enter the BIOS setup. There should be an indication on the screen of how to enter the BIOS setup during the startup. It's typically something like the Delete Key or Function Key.
Check to see if the BIOS recognizes the CD-RW drive. If it does then your problem is most likely in Windows. If the drive is not visible in the BIOS then a number of things are possible. Is the drive set to Master, Slave, or Cable Select? Is it on the right setting? Have you tried both of the IDE connectors?
If you need more help with this just let me know. I also want you to know that I'm not getting paid, I just like helping when I can. If you've found this information helpful I hope you'll give a positive rating. If what I've offered has not been helpful please let me know so I can try to help more. Thanks and good luck.
