Sorry I don't have an answer.
I have the same problem. Usually, if I have many open IE sessions or if Nero "freezes" and I use Task Manager to End Task.
At this point, I get the same message as you. At this point I must reboot W2K in order to use Nero again.
I even renamed InCD to InCDxxx.exe so it will not load at startup; but regardless of inserting/removing media and/or leaving CD carrier open, reboot is my only recourse.
Somebody once suggested hold down combinations of <ctrl><shift><alt> while Nero is loading, but that made no diff either....
Currently using some older flavor of Nero 5 - (cannot tell precisely which version until I reboot again), but it is NOT the newest. I've DL Nero5524, but have not yet installed it.
Would appreciate any suggestions ?
I got the error "Nero has caused an error in cdrom.dll. Nero will now close" or something like that. When I try to open it again it comes up with a warning "InCD currently accesses one or more recorders. Please eject these CD's and restart Nero afterwards"
There are no CD's in the drives and I can't find anything on the Ahead website to help me.
I am a bit of a newbie to this sort of stuff and need help!
