It pays to check.

My secondary slave DVD combo stopped being shown in My Computer and disk management.I checked in Bios and it was not being detected so assumed it had failed.

Bought replacement but it did not show up in Bios either.Decided to try another data cable and the drive was detected.This means i have wasted money on a drive when the cable was faulty.The faulty cable was one of these nasty round yellow ones so it was not much of a bargain.
