Unhappy CD/DVD Drive mayhem

I recently installed Nero 5.5, but it didnt recognise my CD/DVD writer. I tried re-installing Nero, and checking all the settings, but to no avail. My next step was to upgrade my drives drivers. I found the official drivers from my computer manufacturers homepage, and flashed the drives.
Now, ever since Ive restarted, my drive comes up as a CD drive and wont even allow me to access CDs on it!
Ive tried going to Device Manager to uninstall the drivers again, but everytime I do anything remotely connected to the CD/DVD drives properties, windows (more specifically device manager) crashes.

Could anyone help me?
Cheers - Phil

Drive in question:

Fujistu Siemens
Windows XP Pro
Pentium 4 3Ghz
512mb RAM
