Replacement CD-Rom not found

I am trying to fit a replacement CD/DVD drive. I removed the old drive, and deleted it from the Device manager, but the new drive is not detected found. The new drive does work under DOS, I can boot from it with a Linux distribution (Knoppix), but it is just not there under 98. The other drices and letters are: C, than a large hard disk partitioned into D, E, F, G, and a SCSI CD writer as H. So would like to fill I, the drive letter occupied by the original CD-Rom, but the exact driv letter is not essential.
Any ideas?

Is the old drive detected if you refit it, Ralph2002? Make sure you hae the jumper set correctly on the back of the new drive and that the BIOS is set to auto-dectect the new drive.

The old drive is defect (a couple of gear wheels fell out! :-)).
I assume the electronics are OK, but when connected, it is not detected either (any more).

First thing I would try is a new IDE cable, Ralph2002, you should have got one with the new drive.
