Default not recognizing cdrom drives

k so my hard drive crashed in my computer, so i got a new 40gig one, but when i put it in the computer and start it up, it says that no cd-roms are found when there is 2 plugged in and u cant open them to use a recovery disk. Does anyone know how i could get the comuter to recognize them??

Does the LED on the CDROMs turn on when you boot?

How are you hooking up the power dongles to the new HD? and how are the jumper configurations. Also, are you hooking the HD up to the IDE for the CD-Roms?
