Did they work before, or did you just install them.... make sure they are jumped correctly, also make sure the IDE cable didnt come out at all

Can we get some better specs of your computer? Like what's your PC manufacturer, the brand and model of your CD/DVD drives, etc.

Hmm...so you have no idea what the CD/DVD drive's manufacturer and model is?

Is it possible for you to call eMachines support?
