What do you mean by will not operate. What are you trying to do?
Any error messages?

It will nor open and accept a cd. It operates if I shut down and press the open button while it powers up, but if I load MD normally it is like there is no power to the drive it will not open when I click on the desktop image of the cd drice it says
mount special device/dev/hdc does not exist
