Try burning at a slower speed.
FWIW: "It doesn't work" is not exactly what I would call "informative." Where/what are the error messages from Nero?

If the burner is original equipment...I'd have to say that it's lived a good life.
The only instance where I've ever seen burner software not recognize a working optical drive...is when I tried to use the OEM version of Nero (that accompanies new drives) with a totally different drive. I finally just bought a retail version of Nero (which recognizes any drive).
The fact that you've tried different burn programs and each has a problem with the drive is pretty strange, in light of the fact that XP recognizes said drive.
To refute/prove...I would simply borrow (temporarily) an optical drive, install same and see if the recognition problems remain.
It's either the O/S or the hardware...should be easy to find out which.

good point, thanks
Well...these days an optical drive is not overly expensive, so I would never consider a new system just because of that.
If you are ready for a new system these days...you have lots of ways to go. The most inexpensive (IMO) way to go would be a motherboard/CPU combo, with DDR2 RAM. DDR2 is dirt cheap, sellers are pushing quad-cores when there's many duo-core systems that are good buy...and it just doesn't take much to change a motherboard and CPU out or install same in a $35 case.
Just realize that you have options to be explored .
