hobbitwoman Tech: Trouble with Nero and SCSI (10) RE: Tech help: Trouble with Nero and SCSI 11 Jun 03


I had a lot of trouble with Nero when I first started using it. I don't know if any of what worked for me would apply to your situation but for what it's worth:

1. Make sure autoplay is disabled - but you've already done that.

2. Make sure you've downloaded all the upgrades to Nero... the solution may lay in one of them.

3. Don't run any other programs while you're trying to burn... use Control-Alt-Delete and turn off everything but Windows Explorer and SysTray (I hope that's right - I've since gotten a new computer and I'm using Windows Media player to burn now so it's been awhile - at any rate, turn off your virus protection, firewall, and other non-essential programs.)

4. Here's the thing that really clinched it for me - unplug all your other USB devices (i.e. printer, scanner, etc.) from your computer when you're burning. For some reason having them plugged in saps a lot of RAM and you might not have enough to burn.

5. If you can, try setting your burn speed back to 4x. I find that even on my new computer, this gives the cleanest, most consistent burn.

6. Stay away from Nero's "tech support"! It will damage your brain cells! LOL!

I hope something here proves helpful to you! Good Luck! :o)
