Okay my old DVD burner died so I replaced it with a LG Super Multi Drive. Well I made sure the SATA and Power cables were properly plugged in... anyways device manager shows up the CD/DVD drive with no errors. Well I put a CD or DVD in the drive... the CD does not show up in My Computer. But its working fine... but the disc isn't showing up in My Computer. Does anyone know the problem? Thanks!

Also the region for the drive is set to Not Selected. However I can change it to another region. Should I?

Name: LG Electronics 24X SATA DVD+/-RW Internal Drive GH24NS50 (Black)
My OS: Windows XP Home Edition SP3

If you could find the firmware and drivers, I would love that! I can't seem to find them!

I just tested it in DOS. It does not read CD/DVD there too. Hardware issue?
