I have just re-installed win xp, okay so far, but when I tried to add nero (oem disc that came with the external HP 840e dvd writer) all went pear shaped. Nero does not load properly, choose back up, choose data, and nero just shuts down. Plus the pc keeps freezing, have to restart each time to unfreeze. Have now deleted nero and I think all is okay again. I hope someone has a good idea. Thanks
Have you tried going to My computer right clicking on DVD-RW/properties recording and remove the tick from enabling CD recording on this drive. Sometimes the Windows recording program can conflict with older versions of Nero. Also have you tried downloading Nero Update.
Thanks for trying to assist. Nero clean did help as system does not freeze as much but behaves oddly still. Very slow to open web browser. However Nero still closes down when you choose a box in their screen..
Thank you to everyone who has tried to help. Have tried all suggestions but still no luck. Motherboard drives, my system HP has a single all in one back up disc. Am I missing something ! Have done fresh installs before with no trouble. Other ideas for nero alternative.........
