Personally I use Nero 7, and never had a problem.

If you have a 2nd drive, (USB , IDE or SATA) you could do the following:
On your second drive create a folder (e.g.Documents 2). From your desktop, Right click ' My Documents', change the default to your new folder and select move.
This will transfer all items in your C:My Documents folder to your new folder.

All files you create in future in 'my Documents' will automaticly go to the new folder, however, the 'My Documents' icon will still be on your desktop and you access as normal.
