Check that the power plug is getting both the +5v and +12v and there is not a fault with the power plug.

What is CSM/SLA -of CD-RW DRIVE SH-R522

It's not CSM/SLA. The letters CSM are directly over SLA, and they are vertically read as CS, SL, MA -which stand for Cable Select, Slave, and Master. They are found on IDE drives as the jumper points. Depending on where the drive is connected on an IDE cable, the jumper should match accordingly. CS is often used for either, preferably when there are no other devices on a single IDE cable.

My TS-H653N CD Rom device does not work. What do

Buy a new one and replace it. Follow this tutorial on how to do it:
1. shut off your computer. 
2. Unplug the power cord from your computer and the rest of the wires from the back of the computer.
3. find a sturdy flat surface on which to work on
4. unscrew all screws from the back of your computer except the power supply screws. You will make a mess if you unscrew the power supply screws.
5. open your computer up by taking the side panel off, or sliding the cover off. 
6. unplug all plugs from the back of the cd-rom drive, there should be an IDE (wide) plug, a cd plug (small) and a power plug (medium).
7. unscrew the 4 holding screws on both sides of the cd-rom drive.  
8. now, you just have to remove the cd-rom drive, carefully by sliding it either forward. Check the jumpers on your new cd-rom before moving to the next step. A typical cd-rom drive should be set on slave if it is using the same IDE cable on the same cable.
9. Do everything in reverse to install a new one.

Unable to detect or use my cd rom

Is this in a desktop or laptop? I will assume it is in a desktop

This could be caused by the jumper setting on the CD ROM is the same as another drive in the PC.

It could also be a loose or damaged IDE cable / power cable to the CD ROM.

Open the case of the PC and verify the IDE and power cable are securely in the back of the drive and the IDE cable is securely in the motherboard port.

If there is a 2nd device connected to the same IDE cable, verify one is set to MASTER and the other is set to SLAVE. Cable Select (CS) setting can fail - placing both devices as MASTER/SLAVE will eliminate a failed CS logic.

If this is in a laptop, turn the comptuer off and remove the battery and AC power. Remove the CD ROM (if the unit can be swapped) and re-insert the drive back in the laptop. Reboot the laptop with the drive in the laptop and test.

My computer does not show my D:/drive, so it does not work

I would assume that your D drive is your CD Rom Drive. If you go into My Computer and the drive isn't there, Lets assume first that there is a problem with the Drive. If you have power to it and the drive does open to let you insert a disk, then our next step is to see if your data cable running to the drive is connected. Make sure that all power cables are unplugged before you open up the computer. Once opened look at the back of the CD Rom drive to check that the power plug is connected. Its the first set of 4 wires closest to you. The next cable next to that is the CD Rom Data IDE Cable. This cable must be plugged in all the way. Most of the IDE Cables will have a red stripe on one side. Make sure this red stripe is closest to the power cable for the drive. This will insure that you have this plugged in correctly. If you follow the IDE cable from the CD Rom to the mainboard (Motherboard) , you can make sure that this end is also seated firmly to the board. If all this is as it should be, go ahead and plug all your cables back in and restart your computer.

If this still doesnt solve your problem you might want to check your bios and insure that the CD Rom is recognized. It will show up in there if it sees it. If any of these solutions dont solve your problem, I would be leaning toward a bad CD Rom Drive.

Problem ide

Hi gustabir,
try this first. (If I am understanding you correctly).
Power on the PC, press the Delete key every two seconds untill the boot menu loads. Go to the title, Boot. Set you're boot device's in the correct order. They should be listed as follows.
1st Boot device Floppy drive. (If a floppy drive is connected).
2nd Boot device CD-ROM/DVD drive.
3rd Boot device Hard drive.
(If you're CD-ROM drive is not listed in the bios main menu, than you're CD-ROM drive is not connected correctly). Please check the CD-ROM data cable is firmly & correctly connected), also check the power cable is firmly connected). If you are using more than one CD/DVD-ROM drive on the same data cable, check that you are listing the correct CD/DVD drive in the boot order. To change the drive's order while in the Boot menu, see page 34 in you're manual.
If the above does not address you're problem, please describe the issue/problem again.

If I can help you further, feel free to post.
Suggestions & comments welcomed.
Mike
