    I suppose your's is a SATA drive. Disconnect all the sata cables except for the Hard Disk and that of the Writer in question. Boot up and check if the drives works. If not take pains and try installing the drive in another PC (one of your friends'). If it still has the same problem check with where you bought it.

    Problems with getting bootable disks to be read - Dell/VISTA


    Solution:

    i) when you start your system press button(F8 or F10 or DEL) so that you can go into BIOS menu now     try explore BIOS menu and see whether

      a) SATA 0 - ST325082045 3.ADG
      b) SATA 1 HL-DT-STDVD +-RW GSA H31

       are just visbile(in sense, you can see them in  BIOS writen ), this will make sure system is able to        detect them, we will be assured that your a)HARD DISK b) DVD writer   are working perfectly ......

        if so without any hesitation format or reload system with  Windows Vista....


    ii) if otherwise any one of them or both are not visible in your BIOS Menu like a)HARD DISK b)DVD        writer 

       try to open your computer tower and locate cables that are going to ur DVD writer, HARD DISK 
       and reseat them(just remove the cable and place them again), by this way we are making sure that    no loose connections are existing..............you can even try new cables .......

       now restart ur system and go in to BIOS menu and repeat the step (i) .... 

       if you are enable to see any one or both 

          a) SATA 0 - ST325082045 3.ADG ....................HARD DISK 
          b) SATA 1 HL-DT-STDVD +-RW GSA H31................DVD WRITER

      then you are having problem with either HARD DISK OR DVD WRITER  and you have to buy them .....




     
     Thanking you

    My dvd rw is not detected


    Sounds like you need your manufacturer's SATA drivers.

    This problem exists a lot when installing Windows from scratch on SATA hard disks. When you start the installation, Windows prompts you to "load additional drivers". It's at this point you put a floppy disk with the SATA drivers in.

    If your install is already working, but just stopped as you say... then you could hunt around the BIOS for a SATA "compatibility" mode, which will get you booting straight away. Install the SATA drivers and you can then put the drive back into normal operation instead of compatibility mode.

    This is also the reason why your other hard disk with Windows can see the SATA disk and optical drive... it probably has the SATA drivers installed.
