Sony CRX320EE DVD/CD-RW drive not seen by windows

Hi Guys:
    I have this new SONY CRX320EE DVD/CD-RW drive. I installed it today and windows does not recognize it. I went to device manager, there is a " ? " mark on the CD-ROM drive. I tried to unistall it and reinstall it. It still didn't work. It keeps telling me that the drive is corrupted or something.I went on google the drive, didn't find any. Any suggestions? Thanks

As I can't catcht the drive, I can only guess something and we need to work together.
First, you must check that the drive is OK. Could you see the drive in BIOS, Could you boot OS from it?
At least try it to boot. Could you see a LED? Could you heard a motor noise?

Have you tried changing the cable from the motherboard to the Drive?

Also, maybe update your controller's drivers in the device manager?

The standard response to this sort of issue is to delete upperfilters and lowerfilters:

Thank you guys for all these great ideas.
To answer Alex's questions.
I do see LED light on the drive, when I open device manager, I do see " SONY CRX320EE DVD/CD-RW" listed but with a "?" mark.
I have not tried to change the cables, but I will try it tomorrow.
How do I update the controller's driver?

Thanks again for the help!

More information about this issue.
I am trying to install this new drive on a DELL Dimentio 3000 box, It had a CD ROM before, never had DVD/CD-RW, there is no cd burning software installed on the box. Thanks

OK. If deleting upper and lower filters did not work, try this:
Go to start - programs - accessories - system tools - system information.
Click on "components"; then click on "CD ROM".  The bottom two lines of this entry should be "PNP Device ID" and "Driver".  What do these two lines say?
