CD-RW drive wont start up automatically

  famvir 10:12 22 Oct 2004

i just got a sony CD-RW CRX230E internal drive to replace my old one, and now every time i switch on my computer it wont show up on "my computer" but instead i have to go to device manager and uninstall the drive and then go to add hardware wizard to get it working fully
also i have a DVD drive as well that opens fine but the computer has not recognised it at all, have already check that cable are in fully
is there any way that i can get my drives to work as they should
thankyou in advance for any help you can give me.
