Apple MacBook Pro DVD-RW Burner Super Drive GSA-S10N

Text:

I purchased a new optical drive to replace the original in my MacBook Pro that continually failed burning.  The original was still recognized in my system profile.  I have a 2.2Ghz INtel Core 2 Duo - 2 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM operating Max OS X 10.6.4.

I successfully installed the new drive - I hear is buzzing around at start up and inserted a CD containing PDF files.

The CD never opened and I cannot eject the CD.  The puzzle is that all software is up to date as well as the firmware.  The laptop does not recognize the new optical drive at all.

Something I missed?  What do I do next?

The new drive:

Dual Layer Superdrive

Model:  Apple MacBook Pro DVD-RW Super Drive GSA-S10N

EEE Code: 0JG, U16, VVH, W8Z, WV0, XQ2, XRQ
