Angry CD drive not working!!!

I have recently upgraded my HP with a new case and ASUS motherboard. I just turned it on today. Since I need to configure the BIOS using a tool on the CD supplied with the motherboard. In My Computer there was no CD drive!!!! I checked the IDE connections and they were fine. Please offer me some help

Is the CD-rom showing up in your bios?

if it's not make sure the jumper settings are correct. Instructions for how to do that should have been included with the CD-ROM

System: Athlon 64 X2 3800+
EVGA Geforce 8600 GTS 256mb PCIE
ECS (pile of crap) Mobo
1.5 GB Corsair PC3200
Soundblaster Audigy Pro
Windows XP Pro, Lemming Optimized.

No the CD drive is not showing up in the BIOS. Well, something is that says it is a CD drive but really does not look like it is one. Lastly, the CD drives did not come with instructions as they were from a prebuilt computer
