Well any CD-ROM, CD-Burner, DVD-ROM, or even a CD-burner/DVD-Burner combo I've ever had to put in doesn't need any drivers...so windows isn't going to say NEW HARDWARE DETECTED because that's mainly for things like graphics cards, PCI cards and whatnot that need drivers to run.
Every CD-ROM I've ever dealt with is plug-n-play and all you have to do is install burning software.
Have you tried just putting the jumpers to Cable Select? That's generally worked for me.
Have you made sure that it's atleast being shown up on the IDE Channel in the BIOS?
