MSI CR52-M failure

I bought an MSI CR52-M cd-writer.
After installing MSI CR52-M i installed nero burning rom 5 wich was bundeld with the cd-writer .
After restarting my computer i launched nero and saw that it did not reconize the MSI CR52-M as a recorder.
I have tried multiple other burning programs but none seem to see the MSI CR52-M as a writer they just see it as a cd-rom drive. like nero does.
It seems to function perfectly as a cd-rom but not as a cd-writer.
In the contol panel under system it says that it is a cd-rom drive. Is this normal ? I use windows me. In the manual it says that windows me will automaticly detect and install the correct driver and that there is no need to install a driver.
I saw the firmware update on the msi site but therefore you need to be able the restart in dos witch isnt possible in windows me. and would that help ?

Is there something i can do to resolve this problem ?

Try the registry checker over at www.ahead.de , and also get the latest nero update while your there.


If there is another drive on the IDE cable woth the writer try the write on it's own.
