So I built a computer and I installed this guy (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16827106348). For some reason, every time I put a cd in it comes up as an audio cd with jibberish on it. I installed itunes and itunes reads the drive as having some cd in it even though there is nothing in the drive. I really don't know what the problem is. Does anyone know how to fix this or have heard of this problem? Any advice is appreciated.

EDIT: After I put a CD in the drive and remove it the drive works like it is supposed to. When I reboot my computer it always reverts back to reading some imaginary CD until I put a real CD in and remove it. Thanks in advance for any input.

Check your driver. It may not be compatible with the hardware you installed

I did some research and found it was a problem with outdated motherboard drivers. I updated everything and it helped.
