links deads....check your connections, make sure your molex(for power) is connected and that your IDE cable is on tight and not upside down or anything.

does is reconize it as a CD player and just wont burn cds or is it not showing up at all as a device in device manager?

Switch the IDE cable for a known working one, if that doesn't work, get a new CD drive.

You know how many CD drive that die for me on an HP computer, more than 20, (Samsung, Phillips). **** happens.
