Unfortunately you don't say what recording s/w you are using.
With nero although you have a default drive, you can always pick whichever one you wish when you want to use it.

where you see the option to 'Enable CD recording for this drive', right-click upon those words and open the 'whats this?' dialogue;

"Indicates that you can copy files to the CD. You can only enable CD recording for one device at a time"

as mentioned, 3rd party software will give the choice of both drives.
