I was using Nero 5 very successfully for many years. I only had a CD burner (no DVD burner) so Nero 5 was just fine. Then last week I bought a DVD burner and upgraded to Nero 8. I'm not really interested in all the video & media stuff so I've just installed Nero Burning ROM and the associated tools. Unfortunately, I'm quite disappointed with Nero 8. It burns the DVDs okay - but I'm having constant problems when shutting down my system (Windows XP). One of the errors relates to NMIndexStoreSvr which (I'm told) is used by the Nero Scout application (whatever that is...) I'm fairly confident that Nero is the culprit because I've never had any such errors before but I get them consistently since installing Nero 8. Also, if I restore a backup of my partition before I installed Nero 8, the problems go away. According to several reports, Nero 7 is just as bad (if not worse) than Nero 8 - but version 6 is supposed to be okay. If version 6 can burn DVD's I'd like to give it a try (even if it's a payable upgrade). I need to stick with Nero if possible because I've got a lot of legacy projects in Nero's '.nri' format. Does anyone know if version 6 still downloadable...?
