Diabling XP's copying to cd facility

  brian132 20:08 29 May 2003

I have decided to follow 2 pieces of advice I have received from readers here recently .
1.To buy the cheap version of Nero 5.
2. to "diisable " WinXP's own copying to CD facility as it may conflict with Nero.( I have experienced this conflict even before I had XP ).
My question is - how do I disable Win XP's facilty from my PC?
Thanks for any advice.

Go to > My Computer > Right click your CD-RW drive > Choose "Properties" > Click on the "Recodring" tab at the top and remove the tick from "Enable CD recording on this drive" > Now click OK.

I use Nero with XP and I've never given a thought to disabling the CD writing facility of XP. Are you sure it's not something else that is causing your problem?

Note that the XP CD writing facility cannot have been causing a conflict with Nero before you had XP, as you seem to infer, as it wouldn't have been there.

If you buy the low cost version of Nero remember you can update it to the current one on the Nero website for free. In fact, you don't even need to download the version you've just bought - you only need the product key that comes with it. Download the trial Nero and then qualify it with the key. Perhaps a current version of Nero will cure the problems without going to the lengths of disabling parts of your operating system.
