I have installed a DVD burner on Windows xp system that also has a DVD/CD r/w Combo. The DVD burner works fine but the combo now acts only as a CD reader. It's no great problem but shouldnt it still act as a Combo? Currently using Nero 6 software and any thoughts would be appreciated.

How have you got the drives and hard drive connected ie which ide channel's are they on?

DVD burner is master with Combo as slave on secondary IDE. Hard drive on primary Ide

Try putting combo as slave on primary ide with hard drive as master and leaving burner on secondary ide as master.
