Problem playing games, seems to be the recorder

I have a problem with my Asus DRW-2014L1T S-ATA recorder!

My system configuration (1 month old)
Motherboard: Asus P5E
Processor: Intel Core2Duo E8200
Graphics card: NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT
Memory: 2 x 1GB DDR2 6400 Kingston
Hard drive: 2 x 80 GB Serial ATA 2 in RAID 0 and 1 200 GB Serial ATA 1
Operating System: Windows XP SP2

All works well and updated as well. The problem just arises when playing Battlefield 2142! It says that there is no DVD ROM in the drive! So I reinstalled the game, the patch of the game etc still nothing. Tried a new recorder and also tried firmware etc but the same issue. Therefore I dropped out playing it. But now on COD4, I can not play that in multi-and solo; it is not possible! I click on the link to play and a new error "Make sure the right DVD ROM is inserted into the drive" Please help me if you have an idea!

Try with some different SATA cable and see what happens. Also try using some different CD/DVD (some movie or songs CD/DVD) just to confirm if the drive is working properly or not.

Thank you for responding! But I tried a new brand burner and also SATA in the same Battlefield 2142 and cod 4 solo, it does not work yet. I changed the SATA cable and SATA port! I also tried a DVD and it plays very nicely!

I have the same concern with my DVD player, there must be an option in bios I suppose.

So I went to the bios of my ASUS P5E and shut off the controller PATA / SATA, and it solved the problem.
