    I have just loaded the above programme which includes nero 6. I have saved my files on my hard drive but when I try to burn my dvd it crashes very quickly and wont go any further. What am I doing wrong? I am using windows xp and to burn the dvd I chose "nero burning rom" button.

    How much Ram do you have ?

    Are you shutting down all other applications (to prevent them using Ram that you need for this particular task) ?

    I have 512mb Ram, run XP and have used Nero 6 Startsmart without any problems, though many people find that burning photos for example may hit problems, if their Anti Virus is still running.

    I have same setup. Initially I had only a one in five success rate, I then paid a little bit more for blank DVDs and it solved the problem. The quality of the blanks make a difference.
