If it is the optical drive that you are trying to replace, is shouldn't need a software update in theory. Perhaps there is something else wrong, or there is a problem with the new optical drive.
To test wither or not it is the new optical drive that is broken you probably should contact your supplier and see if they can exchange it for you and try again.
Or you can get SATA Wondercable plug in the optical drive and see if it runs.
