Thank you everyone, I updated the BIOS and the drive still wasn't recognized, I can still use Windows with it, and it's faster than my hard disk drive, but I think I'm going to be looking for a new computer in the next few months instead of in the ~8 months I had originally planned.
I'm sad to see this thing go, it had a good run. Even now it's playing Borderlands 2 in the highest quality details with no lag.
However, this is only one of many problems based on the old hardware/software.
