Default Windows XP - CDRW installation

I installed a Philips CD rewriter model PBRW5224 and encountered two problems:
1) the CDRW installs itself between my two harddrives and becomes D drive: I want it to become drive E instead. How can I do that?
2) Although the rewriter is supposed to handle high speed and ultra speed media it gives me an error message when I enter this kind of media. It does write to multispeed 4x cd's though. XP recognized the hardware and automatically installed it but when I look under properties it says it is a Philips CDD 7052. I presume it is a driver problem. If so, where can I find the proper driver? BTW I have Nero 6 as burning software.
TIA. Francois
