Nero & The Burning Software in XP

  Blott 07:43 29 Nov 2004

Just bought new computer with XP, but still using old one with Win98. Have Nero on the Win98 one.

The two burning softwares are incompatible - can't use either Nero or XP software to format a CD that will drag 'n drop on both machines.

Is it OK just to go ahead and install nero on the new machine, or do I have to uninstall XP's own burning software first ?

Regards to all

Hi Blott. What version of Nero do you have?

Nero InCD is notoriously flakey. If you search this forum you will find numerous threads from users who have had problems with it.

I put Nero 6 straight onto my XP machine without removing anything. Certain parts of Nero 6 require a free update patch to work with SP2 - normal burning appears unaffected without the patch despite the warnings (the patch gets rid of the warnings however). I am presuming that you have the full version of Nero - if you have an OEM version supplied with a burner then life will probably not be as easy.
