The drive did not respond in a fixed time to the access attempt 1100:012A, 1100:022A, 1100:032A, 1100:042A

My CD/DVD drive stopped working.  When I attempt to reinstall the driver, it fails.  On the drive properties, I see "Drive cannot start code 10".  I have replaced the drive, and the SATA data cable, and still have exactly the same problem.  I have run the PSA test and it revealed the error code listed int he title of this message.
