So i bought 3 days ago an ASUS Green DVD Writer (24D5MT) and today i decided to test it on my ASUS Laptop (X555L). Yes i know that it requires a SATA cable but i have one. It is SATA to USB cable and it is been working fine to this day. But my problem is that it wont open the disc tray, and every time i press the button it just blinks green light and stops after 2 seconds of blinking. I've tried everything and it just doesnt work, even the "Eject" button on Windows Explorer but then comes just "It is now safe to unplug device from computer" or something like that. ImgBurn just says "Device Not Ready (Medium Not Present - Tray Closed)"
Here is the log:

Sidenote: That Drive 1 (HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GUC0N AS01-37) doesnt write, it just reads so thats why i bought this external.
Any help will be appreciated.
