new dvd error

  fairweather 22:30 10 Jul 2008

I have a Mesh Elite Prestige Duo running Vista and have installed a second DVD/rewriter sata drive ( sony ). Have installed the power lead and a sata lead to the mother board as per instructions.
When turning the computer on it immediatly shuts down and a blue screen appears indicating that it has been incorrectly installed.Have checked the bios and it recognises the dvd drive.
Any ideas what i may have, or not have done to
cause this problem.

Is this the only SATA drive in your PC? If so check the BIOS, you may need to set it to IDE emulation mode rather than AHCI (native SATA mode).

Just realised you're using Vista. That should have the SATA drivers available for detection.
