check the cables, replace the ribbon cable with another. and also swap the power cable from the drive that works. see if that does it


Thinking about it.

do you mean it doesn't open? some drives have a small hole in the front, you need a pin or something to push in and it should open then

You mean this thing? CD%20drive%202.jpg

Yes, you can. But since you were not aware of that, I wouldn't suggest trying to, as serious problems could arise if you don't know what you are doing
