DVD burner Detection Problem

Nero (Nero 5) will not detect my DVD burner. ( Plextor - PX 708A )
Windows does. I used to use it, I got a new HD and reinstalled Windows XP Pro. It does not work now. I did go into Properties on the DVDR drive and select Allow CD burning under the recording tab.
Nero has an auto detect recorder, but I lost the install CD, which it needs…
Any help/suggestions? :confused:

Maybe your Nero is too old to recognize the Plextor PX-708A drive?

According to the Nero Supported Recorders list, you need or newer to use it with a PX-708A. See the list here:
