    I just got a Samsung CDRW/DVD combo drive for my dads dell and I had no trouble putting it in the open bay. I turned on the computer and It had power but for some reason Windows wont detect that any new hardware has been connected. Any suggestions on what I should do?

    Make sure the jumpers are set right, the IDE cable is plugged in (properly).
