    is your cdrw drive able to read the 90 min cd's
    it may not be the software, some drives aren't compatible with the 90 min cd's

    1. Nero Express is poo and may not even offer the functionality to read anything beyond 650 and 700s. Nero BurningROM would have a better chance.

    2. As tmfloria said, there are burners that cannot handle these giant CDs. What make and model are you using?

    3. In both Nero BurningROM and Nero Express, goto the preferences --> Expert Features --> Enable Overburn & Set the maximum time to 99 minutes. Re,ember to burn slowly.

    To setup the overburn:
    1. Start Nero, close the dialog box
    2. File --> Preferences
    3. Expert Settings
    4. Enable Overburn
    5. Set the max to 99 minutes
    Burn slow.

    Note that this works hit and miss with a lot of people. I wouldnt use Nero to burn anything past 700MB media. Try a more 'robust' program or BurnAtOnce.

    1. With Nero BurningROM burn slooooow
    2. Dont use Nero 5.5.10.50 or 6.0.0.15 they have identified overburning issues
    3. Dont use Nero Express. It doesnt give you the control you need over your burn (although you dont really have much control with Nero in general anyways).
    4. BurnAtOnce: http://www.afterdawn.com/software/cdr_software/cdr_applications/burnatonce.cfm
    5. I personally reccommend CDRWIN5 for overburning; BurnAtOnce is my second fav <<Insert Shoey's Endorsement of BurnAtOnce here>>

    I (nor anyone else) wouldn't wan't to pay for CDRWin 5.0 when burnatonce can get the job done and best of all, it's free! CDRWin 5.0 is a great burning program, no doubt about it!
