  1. What OS are you running?
    Do you have it set to hide when empty (win vista/win7)?
    Is it an older PATA DVD drive which needs to be set to master/slave/cable select?
    Will the tray open and close when the button is pressed?
  2. Does this drive show in BIOS and Disk Management (Right click on computer >> Manage >> Disk Management.
