I have an OEM version of Nero 6. The disc erasing function is inoperative. My question is - is it necessary to erase a RW DVD or CD before recording on it again, or will it be erased automatically when I try to record? Thanks.
Thanks to fingees, but won't this cost me? When I hit the update button I get offered an upgrade for about £41, which I consider rather steep as I have most of the prog., and I paid for the DVD player software also.
Thanks to pj123 & rawprawn, but I already updated on the Nero site. However, I have not installed INCD, as I did not think I would need it, as 1,2 & 3 seemed to cover all I needed. Do I need INCD to format & erase DVDs?
Sorry if I appear dense, but appreciate all your help.
You only need to use InCD if you want to use 'packet writing' that is to have the ability to drag & drop files from one place to another , in other words to be able to use a cd/dvd like a giant floppy disc.
Nero itself should enable you to erase a disc. Use from the applications 'nero burning rom' click cancel on the dialogue box then use menu recorder / erase re writable disc . I don't think you need to format the disc as whateever writes to it ( apaart from drag & drop ) will do this as it goes along
You do not need to format the CDRW if you only want to use NERO. InCD is so you can Format a CD or CDRW disc, then use it as a Big Floppy disc in Windows Explorer instead of the NERO program. You can then right drag files onto the Drive and click copy
