restored winxp now dvdrw drive is not working

Specs: Windows XP
please help. im seriously freaking out right now. any help would be greatly appreciated.

ok. something happened and i had to wipe and restore my hp desktop. its an windows xp. i used my restore disk and everything seemed to work fine. then i tried to burn a dvd.....

drive d is a cdrom(top tray). drive e is dvdrw(bottom tray). or something to that effect. right? well once i load my trays and pull up my computer is has them wrong. it say drive d is the dvd burner and drive e is cd rom. when i got my desktop it didnt have a cd/dvd burner so i bought one and had it installed. it is a liteon cd/dvd burner. i thought maybe this might be the problem considering that i restored my computer to factory settings and the dvd burner wasnt a factory component. what do you think?
i know there is this program called InCd on it. it lists all the drive info and drive options. i will not let me enable the recording or write feature on the dvd burner.

ive tried everything i can think of and nothing works.

im not computer illiterate but i dont know the technical terms. if you walk
me through it im sure i can do it.

INCD is the Windows burning program. It can be uninstalled if you install Nero or other burning application. I'm not a fan of INCD.
The drive letters are assigned by WIndows. You can change them to whatever you like, A-Z, as long as it's not in use (C). Burning applications don't care what the letter is.
You should have another CD that came with the DVD burner. It has that application you want on it.

Install the latest Windows Service pack, if you haven't yet. Then the burning software.
