As usual, Ian has 'hit the nail on the head' as it were.
With Nero 5, we had a lot of restrictions for OEM drives, at the OEMs request. Then when Nero Express came out, the OEMs had begun to 'relax' these restrictions, so we allowed Nero Express to work with any model recorder, whereas Nero Burning ROM 5 still had the restriction of working only with the model recorder it was shipped with.
Of course any Nero 5 retail build would work with all model recorders. This restriction was only associated with OEM builds.
When Nero 6 was released, we removed this restriction from both Nero Express and Nero Burning ROM for OEM builds.
