Optical drive in Windows XP...forgive me if silly question

I have an HP ze5000 laptop with a combo drive. It came with HPs burning software (which sucks), so I installed Nero 5. After the installation, the drive doesn’t show up in Windows any more…obviously the install changed something, but I don’t know where to look.

Thanks, in advance, to anyone that can provide assistance.
