nero with OEM drives question

Postby msuiter on Fri Apr 15, 2005 2:39 pm

i'm looking at building a PC for a friend. they want a DVD burner and CD burner and i was thinking of lite-on. they both with nero. if i install either copy of nero, will it work with both drives? if not, is there something i can do?

i thought i remember that nero will only work with the drive it came with.

My Nero OEM CD that came with my CD writer works on all of my writers.

If it doesn't work with the 2 Lite On drives, a retail serial # will be required for both drives to work. Nero does have an upgrade feature available for that purpose.

For OEM bundles, such as Yamaha, TDK, Memorex, Lite-On, etc. you do not need a serial number, as it is embedded and will install automatically. After a successful installation, you can find your serial number located in your registry.
Follow the steps below in order to locate it:
1) Click on ´Start --> Run´ and type in ´REGEDIT´.
2) Click on ´OK´, which opens the Registry Editor.
3) Click on the folders ´HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE --> SOFTWARE --> AHEAD --> NERO BURNING-ROM --> INFO´.
4) You will see your serial number on the right-hand side of the Registry Editor, with following name (related to the respective version you have): Serial4, Serial5 or Serial6
This entry looks as follows:
14xx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx (for Nero 4)
15xx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx (for Nero 5)
1Axx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx (for Nero 6 Ultra Edition)
Please note the number.

I'd check and see which version is newer. They could be exactly the same version.
