Solved: After installing Intel RAID Rapid Storage drivers on both my computers, which have SATA hard drives and burners, then Nero 7, 8, 10 and 11 all ran flawlessly on Vista and Windows 7. RAID Rapid Storage provides improved performanace and reliability for systems equipped with SATA discs for desktop, mobile and server platforms.
I had been running Nero 8 on Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit on my old PC without any problems. After building a new PC with Intel i7 960 CPU, Intel DX58SO2 Extreme mobo, Corsair SSD SATA 3 Hard Drive ... suddenly Nero 8 would not work.
I thought I had solved the problem by running it in compatibility mode WinXP (SP2), and also switching off Windows burning software. However this was a temporary respite, with intermittent success ... and a lot of destroyed blank data discs.
I next tried Nero 10 Burning ROM Trial version with the latest updates. And this was a disaster. Problems included inability to load the program, (eventually solved); inability to run properly with burn failures causing unuseable discs, and BSODs. After 15 or more email exchanges with Nero tech support, including log reports, etc, I finally gave up on it. Nero said it was the wrong media, but I had tried several different brands and +/- R and RW.
The irony of it was that on the same: PC, mobo, burners, (same driver
versions in burners), media, 3rd party software ... etc, etc ... Nero 10 Burning ROM ran flawlessly on Win XP Pro. So the conflict lay in Windows 10 Ultimate. I have tried numerous other burning software but can't find one that can duplicate what is for me, an essential feature in Nero
. I mainly burn data multisession +/-R DVDs
. These discs are regularly updated. As distinct from drag/dropping folders or files from the desktop
to the burning window profile, Nero allows files to be drag/dropped within the burning window profile between existing folders
on an existing mulitsession disc.
When I am editing an existing multisession data DVD, with Nero I can create a new folder, and drag/drop existing folders from other locations on the disc into the new folder. Or if a file has been burnt in a wrong folder, I can drag/drop it into the correct existing folder. Or I can move files out of a folder to any other location on the disc.
On all the other software burners I have tried, the only way to do it is to delete the files in the wrong place and re-burn them into a new location, which is archaic compared to Nero.
My preferred other choice would be Roxio but don't know if it has this feature? My old Roxio does not which is why I went to Nero. Unfortunately I cannot find the option for a trial version of Roxio before buying and don't want to shell out the $$$ until I know it has this feature and will work on my system.
Can anyone help on this issue either with a simple freeware burner that allows existing multisession folders to be moved to other locations on the profile; or a retail brand that will do the same thing that I can trial before buying. Any help would be greatly appreciated as this is a major pain in the butt for me.
