Drive not acccessable - Winxp he

WinXP HE.
Because of other small problems, I changed the names of my drives, accept for "C"
As this did not resolve the problem, I returned to the original drive letters.
I have a CD/RW and a DVD drive.
But now, when I have tried to use Nero 5.5 and insert a blank disk to copy to I get the message "drive not accessable"
I have tried uninstalling/reinstalling the drives via the "Device Manager" but still no luck.
Both drives will work o.k. apart from the "Autorun" and the drives start up when I open "My computer" and place the mouse over the selected drive.
Any advice will be more than welcome.
TIA

madboy33, I'm sure the cables are o.k. because the drives function o.k. when used via My Computer, manually.

rmriph, yes I have tried that the result tells me that there is a problem with RV2?
