Question about Computers & Internet
Is it possible that you accidently pulled a connector off of the CD/DVD drive while you were replacing the Hard drive? Other then that, there should be little reason for you CD/DVD not working if it was working to begin with and I assume it was. Don't worry about the Hard Drive LED, until you start installing your new operating system. It is entirely possible that the Hard drive LED will be hard to see until you start installing to it.

Check for a failing hard drive
Trying booting from the Mac OS X install disc.
insert the Mac OS X install disc.
press the start button, while holding down the "C" key on the keyboard
Once you are running from the disc. go to Disk Utilities select the hard drive click the "repair permissions" button at the bottom.
If you get any red errors listed or it doesn't seem to finish repairing the permissions you have a failing hard drive and it will need to be replaced.
