Default Vista Stopped Recognizing BluRay Drive?

Hey guys. I bought this LiteOn BluRay Drive 3 months ago and it was working perfectly. And then it completely stopped working. I can't eject/open the drive and Vista does not recognize it. It does not appear in the Device Manager either. It does not show during the boot like it used to. I get a red light on my case.

I unplugged it before and switched the power connectors and the SATA location and it worked after reboot. Then now, it does not work. It sometimes works and appear again 10% of the time everytime I reboot my computer.

Any ideas?
