CD Writer can read but cannot write

I cannot burn DVDs or CDs any more from my DVD writer. I haven't been burning CDs or DVDs for almost a year now so I don't know how the problem started.
I even installed two different CD writers, HP CD Writer Plus 8200 and Plex Writer 12/10/32A that were working fine on another PC. I installed the drivers as well. I have reinstalled windows. But still I can only read from CDRom. The system does not detect it as a writer. If I right click on a file and select "Send To" I only see the floppy icon and various locations for the hard drive, but the CDRom is not detected. I have tried Nero but Nero does not detect it as a writer, only as a reader.Since the drives were working before and they are working in aonther PC, I am baffled as to what the problem is. I have even tried installing the drive as a slave on the primary as well as on its own on the secondary port, but with no luck.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
