I've upgraded my version of Nero 5 that came with my cd writer to V 188.8.131.52 from the Ahead website. I now find that Nero Express takes a lot lot longer to load up (about 45 seconds before I can do anything with it) as compared with Nero (Under 4 seconds). Nero Express used to start up a bit faster than Nero.
Anyone had similar problems?
I'm also finding that cdr's that I had no problem writing to (Sony) are now throwing up errors in Nero, mainly Power calibration errors or media speed errors, even if I tell Nero to burn at just 2x or 4x I get these media speed errors.
However,the same discs burn just fine if I use the burning facilities in programs such as Adobe PhotoAlbum, Ulead's DVD Picture Show, or Windows media Player.
Win XP Home SP1, AMD 1400, 512MB RAM, Ricoh MP7200A CDR/RW
Sounds like it may be a bad installation. Have you done a reinstall? Better still download the Nero clean tool from ahead and remove Nero completely,then reinstall from your Ricoh version and then the upgrade.
I've done as you suggested, and managed to burn to a Sony CDR no problem, so fingers crossed that problem is now solved.
Nero Express is still take forever to load up, but I found by accident that if I launch Nero Express with a blank CDR in my CDRW drive it loads as fast as Nero. Not sure why this is but I think I'll leave well alone now and tick resolved.
Thanks for your help both
