    These are ATA drives,

    What can I do to make them ata drives again? Nero is not recognizing them. They are working though.

    Thanks in advance

    Looks like you have your cd's on your mass storage controller instead of your nvidia ide controllers. Move your cd IDE cables to the primary and secondary channels and your hardrives to the mass storage ide connectors.

    Sorry I forgot to mention that I just reinstalled WinXP. I never touched the ide cables. Everything was alright before the Windows reinstall. Could it be Nvidia Drivers, or could it be a corrupt Windows install?

    Thanks in advance.

    Two reasons for Drive recognition errors are as mentioned ....moving the hardware such as CDrom drive to an IDE drive position such as 3 or 4 etc where the driver involved cannot identify or initialise the hardware in question.
    I have had a cdrom drive identified as SCSI on channel 3 .
    But also other existing drivers for other hardware can cause problems.
    You should look @nvidia drivers as a possible corruptible source unless you have introduced any similar driver since your installation.
