Nero 6 not working

Win XP Pro: Sp3: Nero 6
I have been persevering far too long with Nero 6. It is very flakey, and the only way I can load it is to remove all antivirus and all other software first. Last night I wasted six DVD's trying to make a data DVD with Nero 6 and each time it would not verify and the disc could not be read. I am burning the discs on the minimum speeds, and the drive has been thouroughly cleaned. Previously prepared discs read correctly.
Does anyone feel they can reccommend a free DVD data burner, that I can use to verify the hardware is burning correctly.
I don't really want to use Nero again, i am so fed up with it.

Are you sure you don't require to be logged on as the Administrator to be able to burn disks using Nero?

I had a poewr failure recently while computer was on. Now I find when I try to burn a disc my computer crashes ? Will be grateful for any help on resolving this problem.

Im on nero 6 xp pro never had a problem i would say it is more likely your dvd burner,try this download to prove if it is nero, if when using ashampoo burner you make more coasters i would say it is your drive.
I use both of these burning prog and find them very good,

Dont burn to dvd create a disc image (ISO.File)if thatplays ok on the pc then it is the drive .Tyr using Imgburn its free either create image file from disc or from files .It will give you a detailed list of whatgoes wrong .It can also check for firmware updates for your drive which could be the problem click here

Try starting your own thread instead of hijacking someone else's - you'll probably get a better response that way
