    I think the problem might have something to do with the windows XP's ability to burn files within the OS. When you put the CD in, does it take you to your cd burner drive? If so, just close that window and then open nero with nothing open. Should work ok.

    i solved it awhile ago, just thought id post it:

    go to start menu > control panel > services

    find the imapi cd-burning COM service and go into its properties and disable it under the startup type drop down menu
