Default Help with my optical drives

Alright, I'm running XP pro.
Tried installing Nero 5 but for some reason, after the install my optical drives disappeared from windows. The bios still picks them up so they are still connected fine. I tried uninstalling them and reinstalling them in windows, which detects them when i try to ADD NEW HARDWARE, but after reinstall says that the configuration in the registry is bad.

How do I clear this up without reinstalling windows?
