Default DVD Drive not working after new harddrive installed

Dear All,

Firstly many thanks for taking the time to have a look at this post and hope someone can help me with it.

I have a new PC that I have fitted with a 2nd SATA drive.
This went fine and I thought everything was okay.

I then noticed that neither of my DVD drives were working.
I have looked as much as I can and can now only get one to be recognised either in BIOS or Windows.

On te cable label Drive 0 I have my burner and on label Drive 1 I have a reader. I put them both on cable select and neither worked. I then took out the reader and had the burner on cable select and this worked fine. I then tried the reader on slave and master but neither worked.

There are only 2 connectionson this cable as the SATA harddrives run from different cables.

Any ideas?
