My computer will not reconize any of the cd burners I connect to the mother board?

Question

I have tried installing 4 different internal CD burners. I have tried primary and slave positions.

My computer geek says none of the burners were recognized no matter what combination he tried. The computer froze up everytime. I do have an older (3 years) system and another computer geek implied my motherboard is not fast enough because of age to recognize the burner. Is this possible or may there be other things to look at???
