    'avoided' means that the problem was prevented from happening. you needn't worry (about nero...) :rolleyes:

    Check that 'Burnproof', 'JustLink' or whatever buffer-underrun mechanism is enabled. This includes a 2/4/8MB hardware buffer.
    In Nero, somewhere, you can also set a (software) buffer-size during burning.
    If either buffer does not get data quick enough, the burner has to wait for the buffer to fill up, before it continues. Nero counts these 'waits' and reports them.
    You need to dig in the Nero-settings to bring this number down.

    You could also try lowering the burn speed to 24X or 32X.

    Hey guyz just to let you'll know, that I also had the same exact problem everytime I use nero to burn it will giving me this error buffer underrun message but the funny thing is if I use 8x speed, but not with 24x...

    I always thought the slower the speed the better it is, but I guess in this case its not... and now my problem solved...

    Edit: Ok this is sad to say that I had manage to pass the simulation but with the burning process I still having this buffer underrun... what can I do now? out of idea
