Test all power and data leads that attach to your hard drive IDE The leads from your MOTHERBOARD TO YOUR HARD DRIVE make sure they have secure dust free connections and are not faulty. Any bad or faulty power or data lead or connection can cause a computer not boot up. Motherboard and a Hard Drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive if its a flat ribbon 40 pin type IDE replace it this will be the first to fail.
Make sure the data cable is fully connected to the motherboard and the CD-Rom drive. If this is an IDE drive, make sure the jumper choice matches the position on the cable (the 40 pin wide ribbon cable that supports two drives). It also needs to be correctly oriented in the unit - the red stripe on the edge marks the side that goes to pin 1. Only use slave if there are two drives connected to the cable and the CD-rom is on the slave connection. (Note the connectors are black (motherboard), blue (master) and grey (slave) on a standard IDE ribbon. Newer IDE drives have a Cable Select option that you can leave the jumper set to and avoid issues of getting the connections wrong.) If it uses a SATA cable, the jumper should stay as Master (IIRC). If available, try a different connection on the motherboard for the data cable. (Some modern motherboards only have one IDE connector.) If you have any sort of IDE to SATA converter in use, try a direct connection in case the converter is damaged. SATA cables sometimes are designed to latch into connector on the drive so make sure it is fully seated.
Replace the cable if it still isn't connecting. Then check the status of the drivers. In Windows, use the Control Panel and go to the Device Manager. Look to see if the unit is listed with a red X or yellow exclamation point in a triangle. Try to update the driver.
If the above suggestions do not help, you should consider a new optical drive.
I hope this helps.

Power down you're system and remove the power cable from the PS. Open you're case. First clear the cmos jumper. See bottom of page 14 in manual. The GA-8VM533M-RZ motherboard was made Jan-1-2004. It is very likely that the cmos battery needs to be replaced. Average life span is 5 years or less. Pull the cmos battery and check its voltage with a voltmeter, it should read no less than 2.7volts DC. I'm guessing it’s the bios that’s not seeing the CD-ROM drive and the hdd? Suggest you check both the data cables and their power cables. Since the GA-8VM533M-RZ motherboard only supports ATA IDE hdd's, check the drives jumper. (It should be jumpered as a Master) and so should the jumper on the back of the cd-rom drive. See the link provided; http://www.easeus.com/resource/install-ide-hard-drive.htm The link above helps but you're hdd may be different. See the sticker on you're hdd for the correct jumper setting. If you are using a single data cable to connect both cd-rom and hdd to the motherboard don't. Use an 80-pin data cable for the hard disk drive. You can use a 40-pin data cable for the cd-rom but if you have a spare 80-pin data cable connect the cd-rom drive to it. Connect the hdd to IDE1 and connect the cd-rom to IDE2. See motherboard layout in the manual page 5. Need the manual? Download it from Gigabyte; http://www.giga-byte.com/Products/Motherboard/Products_Spec.aspx?ProductID=1766 To view the manual you will need to download and install Adobe reader; http://www.adobe.com/products/reader/ Re-connect the power cable to the PS. You can leave the case opened for now. Power on the system and press the Delete key every 2 seconds until the bios menu opens. (Make sure the time and date are set current). See page 19. Than turn to page 23. Make the settings as follows; First Boot Device [Floppy] - (if one is connected) Second Boot Device [CD-ROM Third Boot device [HHD-0] Password Check [Not needed] CPU Hyper-Threading [Enabled] Check all settings while in the bios, save and exit. The system will auto re-boot. If after replacing the bios battery (If needed), and the bios still does not see either drive than the problem is either the bios or the motherboard's controller. The bios can be flashed but the MB controller can not be repaired.
Hmmm.... mainly you have: -20 or 24-pins connector, that is unique and goes directly to motherboard (powers motherboard and its components) -4 or 8-pins connector that powers CPU -the rest would be connectors for ROM (CD/DVD/BlueRay) and HDD devices (there are: molex and sata power conectors)
Hi Conor, every SATA drive is a master drive. With that in mind you're SATA must have windows installed on it. Please disconnect the data cable & power cable's from the IDE drives.
(Do not reconnect either IDE untill you have finished).
Install windows on the SATA drive. Install all the needed drivers, than update windows. When finished Check the pin setting on the IDE drives. Set one as the "master with a slave" & the other as the slave. Than you can add both into the system. If you had windows on one of the IDE's just delete the root files on that drive so it does not conflict with the new windows on the SATA drive. Go in the bios make sure you have the SATA drive as the boot drive & not either of the IDE drives. If the system still shuts down after all this, try replacing the data cable for the IDE drives (Both should be on the same data cable). Swap the power connector from the CD-ROM drive to the IDE.
Next, if you're system still shuts down after adding either of the IDE drives, than swap the ports. Connect the CD-ROM to the primary IDE port on the board & the IDE hard drive to the IDE slave port. (This is for testing only). Double check all power connections from the power supply to the motherboard. Leave the case opened. Look at the board when booted. Watch for the the case LED's lighting up & flashing cr-rom's LED flashes, look at the CPU fan. Make sure all fan's are running & listen for the drives running.
Let me know if anything changed or not. Post any thing odd or if any thing did or didn't work & I'll go from there. Everything is a test & error soulation. One change at a time.
when you purchased the t sonic mp3 player 610 box pack at that time or in that box one CD is there. put that CD in CD ROM and install recovery. then in recovery or where the recovery is install go there and select firmware update, when we update the firmware virsion at that time the data will be loss.during the update don't disconnect the drive.
