have you told nero that the dvd drive is there , i think theres an option to rescan ide channels or something like that so nero knows its there.

i may be wrong , but i'm sure the option is in one of the menus

...programs, Nero, Nero Toolkit, Nero InfoTool.

This re-reads all connected drives.

Once it knows your new drive exists, it'll place it in the 'recorder' menu so as you can select it under 'Choose recorder'.
