Thank you all for your input.
Windows 7 have a built in feature call Live File System. Basically, it lets you use a CD/DVD some what like a flash drive.
Yes, I was aware of this, but I want a data disc that cannot be accidentally deleted or edited except through a burning program.
Did you try removing Nero completely with Revo uninstaller then reinstalling it?
Yes, I always use Revo Uninstaller to remove programs, including registry entries and left over files, etc.
As mentioned above, you should download and run the Nero Clean Tool for a clean uninstall. If you still have imgburn on the system, post a screen of the "Filter Driver Load Order" under tools.
I did use Nero Clean Tool as instructed by Nero techos. I also did follow up manual cleaning as directed by Nero for files from older versions of Nero that Nero Clean Tool won't pick up. These included checks for Ahead and Nero in:
Program Files > Common Files
AppData > Local > Temp
Registry: HKEY_LOCAL_USER > Software
Registry: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > Software
I don't have imgBurn on my system - unistalled with Revo.
Download and install the full version of .netframework4.
Now that is something I have not tried, and will do so. I can load a pristine Acronis image of my OS with Nero 8 OEM installed which I'll remove with Revo Uninstaller; then check with Nero Clean Tool; and finally use the manual clean steps suggested by Nero techos.

I like Ashampoo Burning Studio 10. I have had no issues with it on 64 bit Windows 7.
I have no grievances with Ashampoo except that it did not have the option mentioned in my first post:
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.
That was the whole point of the post. To find a burning software that has this option.

And, since I regularly do image backups before such experiments, I restored from backup and all is OK again.
I also do Acronis clean install images as mentioned above in Item 4. It's not a case of getting my system back to clean install condition, but of getting Nero 10 to run properly; or finding alternative software that has the option to edit files inside the burn window profile.
I don't have Nero 9.
In summary, out of all of that, the only thing I can really try is the susggestion by Ponmayilal to:
- Do a restore pristine Acronis image.
- Uninstall Nero 8 with Revo Uninstaller and check with Nero Clean Tool and manual search.
- Install NetFramework 4
- Try a clean install of Nero 10 Burning ROM Trial.
Thaks all. PB
