You might need drivers for your particular drive enclosure...

Is it a usb enclosure? What EXACTLY happens when you plug it in? It should show up as an optical disk drive with a letter in 'computer'.

Does it show up in Device Manager (under control panel)? Does the listing in device manager show an exclamation point or an X? Those indicate a problem, often that the driver is not installed, and it will show up as 'Unknown Device'.

Have you tried putting a disk in it? I believe by default windows is set to hide empty drives, but you can change this setting in folder options.

+1 ...at least something to check -- default windows behaviour is to show the drive but say it's not ready.
