I have installed a liton 52x24x52 cd writer onto my pc which has already got a cd/dvd rom drive, but when I rebooted the pc the cd writer is not detected, why?

Have you set the master/slave jumper.

CD/RWs like to be the Master. So you would need to set your Liteon to Master and your CD/DVD to slave. Both of these should be installed on the Secondary IDE port. Once that is done you need to reboot your computer and enter the BIOS and make sure the BIOS detects both drives and then reboot.
