    I'm having several problems with real player and Nero 7.

    1. With some of my Real Player RAM files I'm being told I need a plugin for the file, I don't know where I get ones to go with the specific file types- does anyone know?

    2. If I insert a blank CD-R disc it says the disc is full! I know for a fact that there is nothing on the disc but I am being told otherwise- why? It is a trial version of nero 7 by the way.

    3. Nero tells me it cannot cache the files before it burns them, why not? They are prefectly normal files?

    4. When I cue several files up on to be burnt to a disc on real player it says "Will not fit on disc". I don't understand, it's a blank disc and I've checked and double checked that there's enough room. There's only a few files anyway and I'm burning them onto a data cd.

    If anyone can help me with any of the above it would be hugely appreciated!:)

    You can not burn .ram files to disk. They are only text files that tell the real player where to find the actual file. Try this...

    Real Media is essentially a "streaming only" format. It is not intended to be downloaded. There is a work around for download, but it requires entering correct, absolute file paths to get the actual .rm (media) file vs. the .ram (text) file.

    RIght click real audio / video link you want to download and save target to your desktop. Go to the saved .ram file on the desktop and right click > open with > notepad

    When it opens in notepad, cut & paste this URL in the IE address bar and hit “Go”. The file will start downloading to your temporary internet files folder on your hard drive.

    After the file downloads, you must not close out Internet Explorer, just minimize and go to the location of your temp/internet files for IE. ( Usually C:\Documents and Settings\*******\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files where ******* is your windows login/user name )

    Move the .rm file out of this file to another folder. Now the file may be played after download.

    and get the StreamBox ripper program to convert the real audio to MP3 or .wav files for CD burning
