While trying to install a cd-rw drive in my packard bell multimedia F170. The cd-rw and secondary IDE controller are not showing(not present) I have no idea how to fix this problem. I am new at computer use and could use some help.

Is the IDE cable pushed down all the way on the mother board and the back of the cdrw? Check for bent pins. What other peripherals (cd-r, dvd,...) do you have? Did you set the master/slave jumper correctly on the back of the cdrw?
