Have you checked all the connection in the case yet ?
After you check the connections check your device manager for any error icons.

EDIT : Does the drive get any power at all ?
Can you see any lights on the DVD drive ?

un-install the dvd-rom driver, then re-install the dvd-rom. Suprisingly fixes alot of things.....
