    jomel you need to be a little clearer in what your problem is so one of us can help you.

    1.What are you trying to burn dvd or cd.
    2.How did you attempt to back it up.You say you used Nero but this has many applications used for different things.
    3.Any other genral issues like if it was a dvd how did you and what did you rip to your drive with.

    Nero is a good programe so don't just jump ship yet we will probably be able to help you.

    If you are using a OEM version of Nero - it is likely that the DVD burning fuction will be disabled.

    You can download a 30 day (full working) trail version from Nero's site.

    OEM stands for Orignal Equipment Manufacturer (or similar).

    Often when you buy a new piece of equipment such as a DVD burner, you will be provided OEM software. These are generally cut down versions of the full product and as such will not contain/allow access to all the features of the retail version.

    Many DVD burners will be provided with the cut down version of Nero. As such you will not be able to access all the program functions and may suffer some frustrations.

    With Nero you can upgrade to a full functioning version at a cost (aprox $50) or downloading a fully fuctioning trail version (time limited).
