OK so we now know it is not the drive itself.
That would leave the controller which means motherboard or PSU. Now assuming everything else is working fine as you stated then the issue is with the controller or the cable to the controller.
Is your cd drive IDE or SATA?

OK then replace the sata cable as that is the last connection between the two that exists.

The dvd drive is the issue so I am hoping that is what you are looking at the sata cable.

OK so you know the dvd drive that you took out of the other system was working so if you use the drive and the sata cable it was connected to then it should work.
