Default DVD/CD Drive Issue

So I yanked the DVD/CD drive from my machine running Vista and put it in the one running Win7.
The one running Win7 had a SATA drive in it, the replacement is IDE.

The drive shows up in BIOS and I have it set as the primary boot device, then the the hard drive.
However, the drive doesn't show up in My Computer, or Device Manager, in Windows (will open/close though).
I do have an "unknown device", location: on Intel(R) ICH9R LPC Interface Controller - 2916, not sure if thats it.

I've tried different jumper positions, and no jumper at all, it is the only device connected by IDE.
Please read through the thread thoroughly before responding.
