    Open windows explorer, find the burner & right click/properties/recording. See if the box is ticked.

    If you have two writers in windows XP only one of the drives will be able to record with the built in writing software. This is not so with third party software such as Nero or easy cd, actually with most third party software you can actually write to both recorders at the same time. See screen shots...

    First Shot windows own software...

    Point is........it's not just a tick box. When you tick one the other unticks itself. You'll have to go with drz01's suggestion if you want both burners showing up.
