Default dvd drive not working

ok heres the problem:
i got a external dvd r/rw from some one and it was not allowing me to play dvd at a decent speed, it would lag.
so i took it apart and it had a ide plug and a molex polug so i decided to plug it in as a internal drive. the only thing is that when i plugged it in and tried to use it, it does not show up in my computer. so i troubleshoot and it tells me to uninstall it and reinstall it, so i do that and it goes from being unusable to being usable but haveing no drives. this is the like to the external drive http://www.pacificdigital.com/produc...117&ItemID=139
