    Do you have burning software installed? XP has a very basic CD burning capability built in but not DVD burninig. and also did you set the jumper on the drive correctly?

    Try uninstalling the IDe channel the burners are on. in Device manager go to IDE ATA\ATAPI controllers and delete the channel they are on and reboot when windows reboots it will automatically reinstall the IDE channel and the drives.

    ok but does Nero recognize the drive, and can you burn CD's and DVD's with nero?

    This is common for Windows with a variety of drives. It should still function as a DVD/RW in CD/DVD burning programs.
