Burn rights in XP

  wiznyme 23:34 05 Jul 2003

When my children try to use nero they get a message saying that the administrator needs to grant them burn rights.

Just how do I go about doing this?

Thanks in advance

do they have limited accounts?

check in control panel/user accounts and click an account to see if they are user or administrator.

administrators can do anything they want to/with the computer, install software,change settings and so on so it may be best to leave them as limited and keep yourself set up as administrator.

They do only have limited acc's but I would like to let them burn CD's without me having to run Nero as administrator every time.

i think xp pro has more options regarding this.

Start > Run > Type:

control userpasswords2

Click ok.

Select one of their accounts > Properties > Group membership > Assign the user to the power user group. (standard user put a dot in the circle)

Click ok.

Thanks for the help huggyg71 but it says on that site "This tip does not apply to Nero users" which is the program we use.

1. Why do I need Nero BurnRights?

Since Windows 2000 and Windows XP do not grant access to low level drivers for users without administrative rights it's not possible for them to burn CDs with Nero.

Download burn rights and this will allow burning on limited accounts.

both ways should work.use Powerless suggestion is safer option.
