DVD drives reset when burning cds

For some reason, my NEC 3500 and 3520 keep unchecking the “enable cd burning” in the properties for each drive. I recently upgraded my mobo and dvds burn with no problem but now when I try to copy a cd with either Alcohol 120% or Nero, the programs abort and I have to go back into the properties and enable cd burning again. I’ve tried uninstalling the drives and reinstalling the software but neither made a difference. What else can I do? I’ve got a shitload of cds to burn and it’s gonna take me forever if I have to keep enabling manually. Thanks in advance.

PS: Sorry if this wound up in the wrong part of the forum.

The “enable cd burning” is for the Windows burning program, which is supplied by Roxio. If you are using other programs, it would be best to leave it unchecked.
