Nero v.6 and Windows XP

  Marko1 10:29 18 Dec 2005

Since installing Windows xp my Nero Software always shows a message stating that there is a compatibilility issue between the two. It directs me to Ahead Software. I have been to Aheads site but am confused as to which patch to download to solve this isssue. Can someone please post a direct link to the patch I need. Thanks.

I don't have Win XP so not too sure about this but what I have read on the Forum is:

Win XP has a built in burning module supplied by Roxio. It is Roxio that is conflicting with Nero. You should be able to disable or delete Roxio and all should then be OK.

Right, I was not aware of the fact that XP came with Roxio. I'll check this out, thanks

I've just scanned my system for Roxio and have come up a blank? Anyone else have any ideas? Thanks

I use Nero6 with XP Pro without any compatibility problems (the WMP Recording facility is Disabled).

There is a WMP Nero plug-in available but it will not work with WMP10, only WMP9.
