Default trouble with a dvd drive and networking

well first things first lets talk about the dvd drive
well basicly it reads discs when booting but the thing is when i go to my computer the dvd drive isnt there i just reformated my pc

and on to the network issue
we had a working network connection before the format but now we just cant seem to set one up between us its not setting up automatically and the manual process bombed for me. we use an ethernet cross over cable and its in securely and both our ethernet cards light up to intecate(sp) that its reading its connected...


anyway any help with these issues would be appreciated if u need any more info ask...also if u would like to help me solve over msn my email is yokoshima_hitotsu@hotmail.com

a1: Install all motherboard drivers, drivers, windows updates, services packs. Then install the DVD drive drivers. Refer to website of DVD drive.
