It should, as I had Nero 5.0.somthing that came with my old CD-RW which was designed to work on Windows 98 and above.

I am using Nero with Win XP Sp2.
I have had it years, probably with Win Millenium and possibly with W98se.

should have read -

"Have just tried to install and win xp wont let me as it says \system32\autoexec.nt. system file is no good for msdos and windows applications."

Can you edit DVD files with Nero version and burn DVDs? Thanks David

Yes, in fact I've come across this statement recently (I still have a copy of

"An older version of Nero but is one of the most reliable for DVD burning. If you are having file verification problems with Nero this version cures it."

Hi! Following is from the Help file;

Nero provides you with a standard user interface that makes creating any kind of medium child's play. This also means that the tabs which define the properties of the DVD are also largely identical to those of a corresponding CD. The procedure for creating a DVD (ISO) is slightly different, for example because this kind of DVD will not always allow multisessions, so the corresponding tab will not always be available. Options like the choice of format ('Mode 1' and 'Mode 2 / XA') are not available on DVD (ISO)s, so this area is deactivated on the corresponding tab.

DVD is short for Digital Versatile Disc. On the outside, a DVD looks like a standard CD. However, it is able to store more data (currently up to 4.7 GB compared with a CD's 650 MB) as the information is stored more closely together, and the disc is written in up to four layers. This information has to be read by a special laser with a modified wavelength, which is why standard CD drives cannot read DVDs.

Nero enables you to burn the following kinds of DVD:

The individual steps involved in creating a DVD are no different from those involved in creating a CD. The process of creating a DVD is therefore not described separately.

You can create the following compilations on a DVD:

Copy of a DVD
DVD-ROM (Boot)
To find out how to copy a DVD-ROM, for example, please refer to the section entitled 'Introduction'.
