Have you installed buringing software on this PC? What operating system are you using?

If you install the Nero or burning software which came with the burner, it should install the correct drivers.

Win Xp Burning software is installed

I don't think XP has its own burining software - as madPentium says, you need to install what came with the hardware or download some shareware or buy Nero.
