    You may have to switch it to a slave drive first. This can be done by reading the top of the physical drive and finding if u have to move the notch.

    Yeah,as borhan9 has mentioned,make sure that one drive is set to master and the another to slave and this will solve your problem.

    May I add, if you have a DELL, they use "cable select" for their jumper settings on optical drives. Check you pc's manual.
