Default Dell Optiplex GX260 not recognizing new DVD drive

I'm trying to upgrade this old computer for someone. I have updated bios and such. The bios will not recognize the new DVD drive. Windows see's it but doesn't read any DVD I put in it. I'm assuming this is because bios doesn't see it.

He had a CD drive only before.
