If it's not detected by Windows as well as in the BIOS, I think you chould check the Drives' power and data connectors.

So that leaves us with the data connectors. Are they plugged in properly?

Be sure to check that the Data connectors are correctly connected to the Motherboard.

I'm having the same problem. The light comes on, door opens, you can hear the drive read, but nothing happens. It doesn't show up in device manager, but when I look in bios boot order, it says cd rom / uninstalled.
Somebody please help us out here. I've checked my cables as well. :)
