Nero works with just about anything.Did you get any messages during the install?

  struggle8 15:39 13 Mar 2003

Assuming you have the full retail version of Nero. During the install process Nero asks which of the CD drives (CD, CD-RW, DVD, or whatever you have on your PC) you wish to use it with. You then select your current CD-RW drive.

However, many CD-RW's come bundled with Nero, that are specific to that drive. And won't run properly, if at all, on another system. In this case, you will either have to buy a retail version of Nero, which is configurable to any drive. Or see if the supplier of your PC, will give you a version of Nero that is specific to your new PC's CD-RW

well ill have to have a look dont know if its a full retail version didn`t ask anything about which drive on install. so I gather that its not ok tryed nti cd maker pro which is a full retail version but that does the same and wont burn.

Try downloading the latest version of Nero - it will include the addition of more recent rewriters to the list.

If it's a dedicated version of Nero i.e. TDK, Plextor, Lite-On etc it will only work with that particular brand; same for the updates.

Have you removed a CD Drive and fitted the CDRW in place of it, If so you mite try this remove the CD drive from Device Manager and restart your computer it will re-detect the new drive

nero came with lite-on cdr-cdrw that probable why it wont work then. wood chip no the cdr-cdrw came with the pc and the only sofware that came with it is called record now which is rubbish. I want to use nero cos I know how it works if you see what I mean prefered on . oh well just have to buy a copy unless I can download one for FREE cos im tight.

I recently bought a new cd writer and Nero 5.5.9 came bundled with it, and yes as some others have said, it was cd writer specific.

The installation went painlessly but on trying to write I kept getting errors.

The problem was solved when I obtained the free download 5.5.10a

It may be that the same download can solve your problem
