    Check on the Nero site. I believe you have to get a patch for it, you can't use both Nero and WMP on the same machine with XP. I ran into that too, I think Nero has a patch.

    Why? What prevents people from having multiple cd-burning applications in the same operating system? Nero, DiscJuggler, CDRWin, Feurio! and Easy CD Creator all work together.

    I am not refuting you however, I have had many of those and others installed and they would not work together, especially Nero and Easy CD, had to uninstall some of them.

    I know its not recommended. But I (in an act of despiratoin to burn this certain .iso) installed Roxio EZ-CD 5 Platnium after I had already been using Nero 5.5.x.x and now both work flawlessly. I also use CDR-Win. I burn a coaster less than 2% of the time.

    Glad it helped, but I just wanted to say that I have used almost every piece of burning software available. All installed at the same time, and all worked fine. But I guess it varies from machine to machine.

    It must, I had Clone CD, Nero, Easy CD, and CD-maker 2k on my machine and nothing worked.

    On my XP machine now is Clone, and Easy Cd, I burned an MP3 cd the other day and it sounded absolutly terrible in my cd player. I am going to burn another one to see if it is Easy or the media or my burner !

    I always convert my MP3s to WAV first, then I burn them to a CD.

    The reason being I don't trust the built-in MP3 encoder/decoder. Most of the burning programs I've tried come with low-quality mp3 encoders, so the MP3 to CDA conversion is probably equally cruddy.

    What I don't undestand is why Nero won't work. It is totally independant of other system software components... Or so I thought.

    well i didnt have the newest version of nero, and the newest version is advertised on the site with the words in bold underneath "Compatible With Windows XP" so i guess the other version wasnt compatible all the time with windows xp... thnx for helping me solve this so quickly

    I use Nero/CloneCD/and XP's burning facilities, without any problems.

    The only issue with Nero, is you can only use it if you are Administrator.
