I have a Sony Optiarc BC-5500S it sat on a shelf in an antistatic bag for like 2 years I finally had a need to use a Blu-ray drive so I put it into a machine and I noticed that it intermittently works.

eg. if I boot up Windows won't  detect it if I reboot it will start detecting it intermittently,

I've tried reinstalling windows so I don't think that's it, Does anyone know what tool where I could test list to see if there are any problems with it?
