Hey guys.  I bought my new Asus burner only a few days ago and did install it myself following all instructions and what not and made good and sure it was installed properly.  But, when I turned my computer and after the drivers and such installed, I tried to burn a cd with Windows Media Player only to discover that, according to WMP I do not have a burner.  So I did a little bit of looking around on my computer and discovered that my computer is only recognizing my burners as standard cdroms.  This makes no sense at all to me.  I have the Asus burner set to Slave and it is on the second IDE connector.  I don't have any clue as to where to start fixing this, or what to do to fix it in the first place.  So if someone could help me out, it'd be much appreciated!

Make it a Master on the Secondary IDE controller, or make sure it is using DMA (both in the BIOS and in Windows). And try using a real burning program, like Nero.
