Exclamation Problem Connecting A CD-ROM to my Computer

I have a currently working DVD-RW Drive, but I want to add a CD-ROM Drive to my computer. When my DVD-RW Drive is connected to the primary and I connected the CD-ROM Drive as the Slave. And when I turn on my computer and go to BIOS, it says on the Primary "PLE@"? and on Slave "Not Detected". And when it goes to Windows, Theres is no Drive connected, only the floppy drive. I tried like 2 different cables and it's still the same.

Can anybody help me with this problem ASAP.
