Good day to one and all My first post here, seems like nice place to be. I have had a quick browse through all of the threads and not really seen a response to my question, apologies if I have missed it somewhere OK here goes, just started to back up my massive music collection to DVD. Bought a Pioneer 109 16X Dual Layer DVD Burner Firewire USB 2 & FireWire and use USB2, have ritek media discs and the latest demo of nero, using xp pro o/s. So my problem sometimes and quite often is that nero will freeze with no apparent reason and not close down when requested by "end task" in task manager, so I have to reset my machine which is really annoying me. I have heard Nero can conflict with other software apps. I have disabled the xp burning software as suggested here somewhere. I have no other burning / copying software installed. suggestions ? or maybe a diff reliable application. Many thanks for your time, it is appreciated.
