DVD RW Drive not working

My DVD Re-writer is not working as it should.

The drive recognises cd's and dvd's but will not recognise the fact that it is a writer and my pc does not recognise it on Nero either.

What can I do to correct this?

I had this many moons ago and eventually solved it by swapping the connections with another drive. Try to put it on a separate IDE to your hard disk - if it is already, then if it shares IDE2 with another CD-ROM, try disconnecting the other drive temporarily or swapping the two around on the cable.
