    Go into your device manager, remove the burner drive there. Then reboot and let Windows reinstall the drive properly. This usually helps straighten out that type problem.

    That was going to be the next suggestion. Uninstall Nero, reboot a few times, then reinstall. Run a REG Cleaner between the uninstall and reinstall if you have one.

    Hi ERSOBANKS,

    When you uninstall Nero you must use ALL of the Nero tools. The InCD remover, the Clean tool and the Registry cleaner. Pick them up here:
