2510a not recognized

i just purchased the 2510a. i installed it as the master. when i opened up nero to burn, it asked me to choose recorder, but the only option was a virtual device. i uninstalled nero, and installed it again. no luck. i uninstalled the drive, and when it was reinstalling i noticed that it said that it was a cdrom drive. is this correct? i didn’t get any software, so is there anything im missing? when in the drives properties it says a cdrom drive so i think this is the problem, but im not sure. any help will be greatly appreciated. thanks

Download the Nero update on www.nero.com.

Your current 6.x version is too old.

that was it. thanks alot.
