    Have you tried uninstalling the dvd drive itself and rebooting? Also, have you tried deleting the second IDE controller? Or have you done that? Also, check the IDe connections are all OK inside your case.

    does the motherboard see the drive? is there an exclamation mark in device manager?

    I would like to jump in on this discussion as I also am in the market for a new burner. What does anyone think of the LG Electronics GSA-H10L 16x Internal Super Multi DVD / CD Rewriter? How does it compare?
