It then places the files in a temporary location. On the bottom right corner of the task bar you then get a message saying there are files waiting to be written to CD.
this is using windows XP built-in burning capabilities.
if you want to burn some files to a data CD, run Nero, start a new compilation, drag the files you want to burn from an explorer window (or from the explorer built into Nero) into the Nero compilation window, and then click the "burn" icon (or File->Write CD).

of course. Nero will not know about the temporary location where windows XP keeps the files you "marked" to be burnt and all the dragging and dropping you've done.
i hope it's clearer now.
in Nero, click on the 5th icon from the left in the toolbar - the icon that pops up the text "Switches to Nero Express".
try using Nero Express, it is supposed to be much easier for beginners to handle, with simple step by step instructions on exactly what to do.
and don't hesitate to come and ask more questions!
