Try right click on your drive and choose properties. From there click on the hardware tab and highlight the drive you want, then choose properties again.

Click on the driver tab, choose update driver. Let windows search for the driver itself, it will come back with the message that you are already using the best driver. Click "OK". Do this with your second drive and follow the same guide.

This works with XP. and somehow seams to re-associate the drives with their own drivers without affecting the install of Nero.

I had this exact problem last week on updating Nero, with not only losing "Auto Start", but one of the drives also refused to acknowledge I had put a CD in there. Doing the above put things back to normal again. j.
