Question detecting ide drives

Just got a new dvd burner. Its a Pioneer DVR 116d. I am replacing an old Lite- On dvd rom / cd burner.I put it in according to instructions, and my computer just says "DETECTING IDE DRIVES" and nothing happens...does this mean that the new burner is DOA? thanks for your input.:conf
