Jus read this on another old thread-

Bought a (TEAC DW-224E) for a MPC 5000 and it will not show up in power up.
It's getting power because the door opens and it spins up when a CD is inserted.
MPC 2500 or 5000 wont recognize this CD drive. They probably want it that way.
(TEAC DW-224E) NOT COMPATIBLE for a MPC 2500/5000.
