  1. Two possibilities. Bad cable or bad drive. Try a different cable. Try connecting to a different motherboard port. If that does not work then try a different optical drive. Fortunately these drives are easily replaced for a very reasonable cost.
  2. what kind of motherboard?

    maybe you dvd-rom is conflicting with the hard drive
