I'm going to guess at this point that the adapter or the drive itself is bad. I'd probably start looking around in your local area for a place that accepts old PCs and recycles them or scraps them. If you're in a town, keep an eye out for PCs that people are throwing away. There's a decent chance you can find a SATA DVD drive in one and it wouldn't cost you anything. Heck, if you were local to Minnesota, USA, I'd give you one of my two or three spares.
