Lite On 22X Internal DVD/CD Writer installation?

\015 I purchased this product from Wal Mart and installed it myself. The writer is working as far as having power and opening and closing. But for some reason it's not being recognized as another drive on the system task. And as a result of it not being recognized it does not read any dvd's or cd's that I put in it. What do I need to do to get the computer to recognize the drive? Why is the power on the writer working but nothing else?\015
