Did the two programs coexist successfully in the past? If so, this may not be the problem.

Perhaps reinstalling the devices may help - it seems to do the trick in these situations.

Find the problem devices in Device Manager. Right-click the problem device and choose Uninstall. Reboot the computer and see if it is fixed. Make careful note if you receive any error message - copy the full message, and the name of the software producing it (Windows, Nero, or whatever.).
