check the connection and the cable from the drive to the mobo also try another plug on the mobo if there is another one see if that helps.

Somehow i still don't think the optical drive would be that much of a hinderance, but in any case, it sounds like the drive is bad.

Got a question for ya, though; does the computer still boot up?
