Frozen Nero

Postby nelle on Sat Dec 25, 2004 1:23 pm

Happy Holidays all!

I am in the process of reinstalling all my software, having had to reformat my hard drive the other day. I installed the latest Nero last night and discovered that it basically freezes my PC - when I try to open a Nero application the icon moves to my System Tray and then the PC completely locks up requiring a hard reboot. I didn't have this problem before, so while I try to figure out what is causing the conflict I was wondering if anyone knows where I might find the prior version (6601). I have a registration key and would like to use it!

Also, on the off chance that one of these programs is causing the conflict, I was wondering if there is a known conflict between any of them and 6603. I"m not using Roxio or any other burning software.

Replay Music
Itunes
RealRhapsody
DVD Shrink
IrfanView (has a Nero plugin I think)
Flacfrontend
Goldwave
mkwAudioCompressionTool
Various Creative Audigy2 programs (for my sound card)
Various players -- WMP, Quicktime, etc.

Thanks.

PS -- I uninstalled iTunes in case that was the problem - reinstalled Nero and the Nero applications opened up. Then I noticed that my DVD writer had been changed to pio mode - when I turned it back to Ultra DMA 2, Nero once again froze my PC.

I have an NEC 3500AG burner, which worked find with Nero 6.6.0.1 a few weeks ago.

I have iTunes, Nero 6.6, and Roxio 7 all installed (among other things). The most likely problem is a conflict between InCD (Nero) and Drag-2-Disc (Roxio). Uninstall one of them; I'd uninstall InCD as it seems to cause more problems than Drag 2 Disc.

It looks like the problem is SP2 (which I need - otherwise my NEC 3500 is recognized only as PIO not UDMA2 - don't know why):

- I did a clean install of XP SP1, installed all programs -- Nero seemed fine.

- I then installed SP2 - now Nero freezes again and I have to do a hard reboot of the PC. If I try to use InfoTools, the program freezes when it tries to recognize the drive. NeroMix works but the other programs try to start - but all that happens is that the icon moves to the system tray, nothing opens up, and I can't exit the program.

I'm using the latest version of Nero and no packet writing software. WinDVD Creator is installed in the PC, though I used the Nero driver utility to check for driver conflicts and it found none. So I would be grateful for any assistance.
