Does it burn any CDs/DVDs at all? Or does it just shutdown once you try to burn something?
What device is this DVD burner sharing with (since you said it's a slave)? If you can, try making it master on a secondary IDE cable (if there is one available). The DVD burner should have a driver for it. What is the exact type/model of the Sony burner you have there?
This is obvious, but did you check the cables to make sure they are plugged in securely? Try unplugging them and plugging them back in again.
Sometimes this could also be due to insufficient power supply. So if the drivers won't fix it, I would look into unplugging other devices in your computer and see if the burner still goes unrecognized after a restart.

Try unplugging the TDK CDRW drive (both power and ide cables) and then plug in the Sony one to replace it. Boot up and restart. Is the Sony burner recognized now?
