Back up problems with Multi DVD drive

I have successfully loaded XP Back up from the CD but now my DVD does not recognise a blank DVD-R disk. I have 2 drives, a CD-RW and a DVD-RW but "My Computer" is showing 3 drives CD-RW drive,DVD-RAM drive and DVD drive. When I put the blank disk in my DVD-RW drive the DVD-RAM icon then changes to CD drive! If I try to run the back-up program I get a message "unsupported media"

How do I get the computer to recognise the drive as a DVD-RW drive?

The DVD-RW is a LG Super Multi DVD drive GSA-4081B which supports CD-R, CD-RW, DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+R,DVD+RW, and DVD-RAM


Also, should I upgrade to Nero 6 as I see that has a built-in back-up facility?

I've located the problem with the drives. I tried out Daemon Tools which sets up a virtual drive. It sounds as if Nero may be the way forward.
