Hmmm... I would of suggested that the drive is faulty, but you say it worked fine before. It could be coincidence or if you moved the drive with a cd in there that could of caused problems. Are you sure all the cabling is plugged in nice and tight? I wonder if it didn't automatically install correctly. All the options I know for your problem are here...

1. Uninstall the drive through the Device Manager
  • Click Start (in Vista/7 Click Windows Orb)
  • Right Click My Computer
  • Select Properties
  • Click on the Hardware Tab (In Vista/7 click Device Manager in top left corner)
  • Click Device Manager
  • Expand DVD/CD-ROM drives
  • Right click your drive
  • Select Uninstall (see image below)
  • Restart your computer
The drive will automatically be reinstalled

OR...

2. Go to Microsoft's Fix
  • Choose your Operating System's fix
  • A restart is required
OR...

3. Download Restore Missing CD Drive patch
  • Double Click cdgone.zip to unzip it(extract all files)
  • Right Click cdgone.reg
  • Click Merge
  • Accept the registry merge
  • Restart your computer
OR...

4. Go to the Device Manager (similar to option 1 above)
  • Expand IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers.
  • You'll see two items:
    - ATA Channel0 (or Primary Channel)
    - ATA Channel1 (or Secondary Channel)
  • Right click on each of them
  • Select Uninstall
  • Confirm it
  • Restart your computer
They'll automatically be reinstalled.

If none of that works, I would suspect a bad drive.
