    I've upgraded to Nero 8, installing it after using the Clean tool from the Nero site. Everything seemed to be working fine, or so I thought. The software burns DVDs both single and dual layer without a problem. But the moment I try to burn a cd, the software shows a nero.exe error and shuts down the application. I cant figure out why this happens. Could someone please help me out?
    Thank you.

    No, don't need to install a different burning program. If cannot get Nero to work, might have to uninstall it running Nero Clean Tool.
    Try this fix from Nero's website:

    "There might be drivers left on your system from another burning software.
    Please use the driver clean tool in order to disable these drivers.
    Download cleanpack.zip from ftp://ftp9.Nero.com/attach/cleanpack.zip
    Extract the zipped files onto your hard disk using WinZip or WinRar.
    You should now have two files: Driver-CleanTool.exe and RegistryChecker.exe.
    First, run Driver-CleanTool.exe by double-clicking it.
    Driver-CleanTool will deactivate drivers that caused problems in Nero in the past.
    Confirm the deactivation of the drivers displayed in order to prevent known driver conflicts from reoccurring in the future.
    These drivers also exist, with values, in the registry in Windows NT, 2000 and XP.
    In order to ensure that these are also deactivated you will need to run the RegistryChecker file.

    The Registry Checker will run very quickly. It is likely that you won't see any action after double clicking the file.
    Note: Running the Registry Checker is not necessary for Windows ME, 98SE, 98 or 95. "
