You don't install an optical drive.... Windows does it automatically. So explain what you mean by "when I reinstall it".

It sounds like you need to perform the delete upper and lower filter fix. It's posted numberous times in this forum, but in case you don't find it, I'll repost the instructions:

If problem is non-detection by the os, read on....

Simple solution:

Situation
There is a yellow exclamation mark for CD/DVD drives in Device Manager. The device status in the properties of the driver might indicate an error code, for example 32, 37, or 39.

Solution

To solve the issue, you have to edit the Windows Registry:
Click Start, then Run, type REGEDT32 and click OK.
Locate and then remove the following registry values:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetControlCl ***{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}LowerFilters

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetControlCl ***{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}UpperFilters




Close Registry Editor.
Reboot the system for the changes to take effect.

Note: Some programs are unable to detect the CD/DVD drive after these steps. To solve this, simply re-install the program in question, eg: usually your recording software. Also, in few instances the order in which the programs are (re-)installed can make a difference.

And here's another mothod that will do this automatically for you if your afraid to edit the registry manually.

Is that condition causing any problem? Do you have compatible burning software installed? Is the drive listed in My Computer and Device Manager? Any flags?

This term: "but as soon as i insert a CDR it lists it as a CD ROM"

What do you have open that shows it to be a CD ROM? What is telling you that it's a CD ROM? ie: is it Windows or the burning software that's giving you this message?

It sounds like you have a problem with the Nero burning software. Is it a version that's compatible with your drive AND Windows XP os? Like Nero 6 or higher? Is the problem happening only when you attempt to do a burn?
