Post Hard Drive and DVD Drive problems

Hi, i just installed a new 200gb HDD, but i didn't set the jumper settings or whatever as i read you don't need to with sata. So i just left it as that until i just tried to burn a CD and realised my 2 DVD Drives are not being detected On 'My Computer', 1 DVD Drive and 1 CD Drive appears but nothing happens when you click on them and nothing happens what i put a cd/dvd in one of the drives.

Not too sure what to do now. Any help is greatly apprciated.

Thanks

Default

are the dvd and cd pata and on the same cable ? turn off your pc and unplug , make sure that the data cable is not partially out at the mainboard or at the drives.
