Ok I'll try that right now, I was mistaken earlier when I said that all the of jumpers are black, they are indeed Blue, White, and black, I simply had to unplug them to see it. I will unplug to dvd drive now to see if the CD drive is working properly by itself.
EDIT: Okay I unplugged the DVD drive and replaced it with a different CD drive.... My computer at least knows that this drive is there, however it refuses to recognize the original CD drive that I had in.
Although it still does not show up in "My Computer"....

I own several IDE cables, but I've never even seen one of the rounded type
Are there such things as 'universal' disc drives? That can read and write both dvd's and cd's?
