New DVD-RW Not listed, along with freezing (Brr)

Afternoon ladies and gentlemen.

I recently purchased a Liteon DVD-RW Drive (8x+ and -) however since installing it, I can no longer see it listed in My Computer. Also, if I place any sort of CD in the drive, my system periodically freezes for say 20 seconds at a time.

Any ideas?

Could it be something to do with Master/Slave setting?

Thanks lots.

By the way, I'm running XP Pro, on an Athlon 2800+, 1gb RAM, 9800 Pro ATI GFX Card blahdy blahdy blah.

Yes, first you need to ensure that the two drives on the ATA channel are set one to master and one to slave, also that the drive is set to be auto detected in your BIOS.
