Nero 5 won't let me use DVD drive

When i bought my new computer it came with nero as it was bundled with my cd burner. Recently i bought a pioneer A106 which also came with nero. I installed nero from that cd which came with the DVD burner, but when I choose the recorder to use in nero it has a red cross thing on it and doesn’t let me use the drive to burn. Does anyone know how i can get nero to let me use that drive ? Should I completely uninstall nero, then install it from the DVD burner cd?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Yes you probably need to. This is because the Nero version that came with your Pioneer drive will only work with Pioneer drives and no other drives. The same applies to the Nero version you already had installed. That version only works with the drive you got it with and thus not with your new Pioneer drive.
