Hope someone has some ideas for me. I purchased the downloadable version of nero 8 a couple of months a go and I love it. Today I purchased an external 20x multiformat dvd writer (which I got for the lightscribe feature). The software that comes with the external writer is nero 7 and when I tried to install it, it say I have to uninstall my nero 8. Is there a way to continue to use my nero 8 with the new writer? Thanks for all the comments.
