If it's a dead laser you can reinstall until the cows come home and it'll still be a dead laser.
New DVD writers are practically being given away at the moment.

Replacement cost depending on brand will run about 35 USD not including shipping if you buy online.

Do you have them on the same ribbon and is one set as master and the other set as slave by switching the jumper located on the back of each drive?

Try disconnecting power from both drives then boot back into windows.
This should clear all the cdrom drives from your list.l
Then shut down and plug power only to the new cdrom drive and reboot. Does it now identify correctly for you?
If so then I would take out the old drive,
