Have you tried it in all configurations?  Try it on both controllers.  maybe one or both controllers have gone bad.  Try an add-in controller and see if that works well.

Did you try a new cable?
I assume you tried setting it as master? as slave?  Some CD-Roms likes being set as slave even when alone on the IDE.

Do you have the latest BIOS version running for that mobo? If this is an older mobo w/original BIOS you may to need to update it as the update (if available) may have support for these CD-RW drives.

It could also be a damaged IDE controller.

Did you try putting it on the primary rather than secondary as a test ?

Do these CDRW work OK in a different machine ?

I hope this helps !

Don't delete it.  There are four helpful comments (well, SysExpert did duplicate part of mine).  Split it four ways.
