That does seem to be the key (no pun intended). Anyway, it is also working on my machine now.
It is strange. When the original tip was first posted quite some time ago, it only directed you to change the value under the HKEY_CURRENT_USER hive. But that didn't work for me at the time, so I tried setting the value in the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE hive as well, thinking maybe that the 0 in the HKLM was getting copied over to HKCU, and thus changing the 1 in HKCU back to 0. And now it turns out that setting the HKLM value was the wrong thing to do, and apparently causes both values to be reset to 0.
I don't know what has changed since I first tried the tip and just entered the value in HKCU and it still got reset to 0. I'm using a newer version of Nero, that is for sure. I also have an additional CD-RW drive in the system now (a LiteOn in addition to my original Yamaha). And maybe I wasn't patient enough. Even today the first time I changed the value it got reset. But I hadn't burned anything before I changed it today, and some people have reported that you need to burn (or at least simulate) a disc first before it will hold. Maybe it also has something to do with the fact that I must constantly change my serial number in able to use my OEM copies of Nero on both drives, and sometimes that seems to cause Nero to recognize the CD-RW as a new drive and write a new entry to the Recorders key. Who knows? At least it is working now. I will update my earlier posts to eliminate the suggestions to change the HKLM value.
By the way, I didn't need to enter the value via the file. I was able to edit the value manually and it still held, after I got the HKLM stuff straightened out.
