    new laptop , sony drive, dvd shrink 3.2 and nero- gets to the end of the burn process error appears stating drive in use by another application- any ideas(nothing appears to be in system tray) very perplexing driving me nuts- its probably something really simple , but i'm a bit of a luddite.

    This is most likely caused by a packet writing application.
    Part of the way they work is to keep constant access to the drive so when another burning app needs to gain exclusive access to the drive it can't and the write process will be aborted. The three main packet writing apps are connected to burning suites.

    - Nero comes with InCD.

    - Roxio come with Drag To Disc.

    - RecordNow comes with DLA.

    All three should be found in Windows Add/Remove programs listed under said names :)
    In the case of InCD, Nero even has a clean tool for it to remove all traces of it from your PC....

    [bold]No..... Thank you[/bold]

    It's not often people come back to let us know that their problem has been solved, and it is much appreciated.
