Nero 7 Buffer Overrun caused by iTunes registry changes

I have the lasest version of Nero installed

Everything works great until I install iTunes
Now if I try to copy a CD within Nero Burning ROM or Nero Express, I get the C++ error:
Buffer Overrun detected!
A buffer overrun has been detected which has corrupted the program's
internal state. The program cannot safely continue execution and must
now be terminated.

Then I ran the Registry Cleaner tool from the Nero support/downloads website. And this fixed the problem: Nero worked. But I tried running iTunes afterward, and iTunes now shows an error message:

Warning: The registry settings used by the iTunes drivers for importing
and burning CDs and DVDs are missing. Tis can happen as a result of
installing other CD burning software. Please reinstall iTunes.

I tried installing iTunes again and chose the Repair option. And now the error in Nero is back

So there appears to be a major conflict between Nero and iTunes? Has anyone else discovered this problem? I have notified support at Ahead/Nero.

Hi Gtatham,

I'll test it here as well. But if they are doing what Roxio was doing before, loading drivers in the UPPER and LOWER filters that conflict with other recording software.

Last time, we worked with Roxio to get this resolved, though the changes made were done on their end not ours. Not sure if Apple will be as freindly about it. :-(

We have iTunes version here working without any problems, so the change is recent.

Hi Gtatham,

After some extensive testing, I have to say that I can not find any problems.

I have installed iTunes and Nero from our website on a number of Windows XP systems and no matter what order I install them in, both iTunes and Nero 7 have no trouble burning to discs.

There must be another software on your system that is acting as a catalyst for these two programs not to work when installed on your system, as they do not conflict with each other in and of themselfs.
