I downloaded the trial version of Nero Reloaded and am having problems buring my first CD. I am making an audio file that consists of two MP3 files. Both are about 9MBs in size and equate to about 22 minutes of audio time each, therefore 44 minutes in total. The problem is that when i start to burn the CD, the process monitor gets to about 4% and then just sticks. It doesn't do anything else and I have to re-boot my PC to get the burner drawer open. I am also, in the process, having to throw out the CD-R that I was using at the time. Additional background. The trial version upgraded my Nero 5.5 to Nero 18.104.22.168. I upgraded because 5.5 did not support my new DVD burner. I have used this burner successfully before to burn DVDs (using DVD Clone 2). My PC spec is adequate for the requirements : 1.1GHz processor, 256 MB RAM, plenty of free disk space. Any ideas as to what could be causing Nero to be sticking like this? Is it a hardware or software issue? Thanks, Roonsa.
