When you boot your computer, is the writer seen in BIOS?
You may have to enable it in there first.
After bootup, go to device manager and see if its listed there as well

Have you tried uninstalling the software (which I assume is Nero, as Nero comes with Liteon players); uninstall the writer from device manager; and then reboot.
Install software, reboot again
This may work (did for my partner with Liteon CD-R and Nero on 98SE ages ago)

Done still no go

This happened to a friend recently with a Pioneer dvd burner i got for her.

I rang the supplier (Tauranga Computers) and they replaced it immediately.

They will likely ask if you have checked the jumper and cables.
