CD and or DVD problems on ML370 G2

I recently removed my CD player in my ML370 G2 to replace it with a Sony DVD writer/reader. Now when I boot up the ML370 G2 does not recognize it at boot up time nor once the system comes up to Windows 2000. So I decided to put the CD player back in and now it does'nt recognize it either. I put a bootable CD in just to make sure the ML370 might see it but no go. Am I missing something here to expect that the processor should see the new hardware?

Yeppp, the sony-drive is not supported, that's why it may be not recognized.

You can try the old CDrom in other server to test if it works.

If you have OS, check if the drive loads CDs - if it does, check your boot controller order.
If no CDs are getting loaded, locate the system maintenance switch on your systemboard and set pin 6 to the other position - this should switch the server to the backup rom and everything should go fine after that.

Kind regards,
