Does this happen with all burn software or just Nero?
Does it happen with all CD-Rs or just certain brands?
If you can discover the answers to those questions, you'll likely be able to discover the real cause.

You have XP, right? If so, you're not restricted to Nero 7, because you have a version of Roxio that is part of XP. Try it. At least your comment to the effect that the same discs used to work suggests a software or driver issue.
