Where DID my Drive GOOO?

I had just installed/Upgraded from what I thought was a CD (but was really a CDRW) and I did not see Roxio in the Programs list.
Anyway, Intalled Nero 7 which came with the LG burner and it failed due to the presence of Roxio. What can I do to get back the drive in XP Home.
I have uninstalled Roxio and the LG in the Control Panel
Windows found the Burner but I get an error in the Device MAnager

might work if it’s not a hardware problem
