Hello all:

I have just installed a new CD/DVD burner (Watshita) and the software (NERO) I was using with the old CD burner does not work.
I am working on an XP Pro os.

Please Help

Did you get any burning software with your new burner? If you did you will have to use it or find a free burning program.

To clarify the above, the version of Nero that came with your CD burner is limited to working with that make and model of burner, so it will not work with a new DVD burner.

Usually new burners come with such bundled software, did yours not have a copy of Nero with it?

What exactly about the new drive "doesn't work". Can you give us some exact symptoms?

I think the Nero I'm using did come the old Sony CD burner.
The software that came with this DVD/CD writer is "ULEAD" & "Nova Backup".

Well the drive seems to work OK as a reader (reads all CDs & DVDs), but I am only able to burn image files to it as a cd burner (using Nero). I used a DVD copy program and it did burn something, but then it was unreadable by both itself and the other drive; DVD/CD-ROM.

I did not know the drive/writer could be incompatible with the Nero or any other writing software.

What can I do to continue to use the Nero, and also how do I use it as a DVD writer?

thanks
