You can use this free program instead. Try it and see if it does what you need. I use it with Win 7 64bit.

CDBurnerXP; works good. It reminds me of an older version of nero, on XP!
Something about that bugs me a little bit but it burns - copys dvd disks fairly well.

Windows 7 Ultimate Signature Edition

for those that don't know windows 7 handles burning differently than either vista or xp. this is why so many people continue to have problems with older burning suites. usually just switching to an up to date burning software like CDBurner XP mentioned above will solve the issue. only wanted to mention it because i've notice these problems crop up a lot and thought i'd make sure everyone was aware of the cause.

Could you breifly explain the difference?
I would presume it was a software issue on a new platform (xp - 7).

Windows 7 Ultimate Signature Edition

the best i've been able to understand it's got to do with the way the new driver's work and an integrity check that cause a lot of the older burning softwares to not work. i know this happens often with nero's products and convert2dvd as well as several other's.

Windows 7 64 bit

I have managed to install and successfully use Nero 7, I know of a way to do this and have no problems.

Before any of this make sure you right click Nero 7 and make it look like:

1: Disable your internet connection from your machine (in other words unplug your Ethernet or turn off the WiFi).
2: Start your installation, follow all the steps to install.
3: Reboot if necessary
4: If this did not work then try again, but I have successully done it this way.

*scratches head* Nero 7 works perfectly fine on Windows 7 (both platforms) and always has. You don't need any special tweaks, either, just install and use.
