    I would first ensure the power and data cables are securely connected to the drive, and other end of the data cable securely fastened to the motherboard. Consider using a different power connection and data cable to be sure.

    If they are securely fastened, and your computer works fine otherwise, then it sounds like the drive is failing.

    Normal? Yes. Right? No. I note this W7 system, it says I have a SAMSUNG SCSI Disk Device, but it too is SATA.

    They seem to have corrected that in W8 as the drives there are reported as SATA.

    If it intermittently shows up, then sometimes doesn't, I would suspect a loose cable, or failing drive. You might swap in another drive, if available, and see what happens.

    Sure, you can replace a CD drive with a DVD Drive or DVD Burner, or a BluRay drive. I've used LG with no problems.
