Thread Name: Tech: CD Burning - Help!!!
Subject: RE: Tech: C.D BURNING. HELP!!!
I also have Nero, and spent the better part of the last two months trying to put all my digital pictures on CD. I read every site I could find and tried all the tricks: 1) good quality CDs 2) defrag and reboot 3) slow writing speed (and several unique to Nero concerning the settings) 4) close all running programs

I finally, in desperation, asked my son-in-law to troubleshoot it for me. Immediately before this I FINALLY read the minimum requirements......it said 64 MB RAM minimum, 128 recommended. I only have 56 MB RAM! So I was prepared to upgrade to more RAM, but he looked at it anyway. It seems that there was an adjustment under "options" (I think) where he reset the buffer to a larger %(?), and it now works!

In my Nero software (which I don't think is user-friendly at all) I could never find out how to change the writing speed. (The option was always "grayed out." Now it appears that it sets itself, and if it is already on the lowest speed, 4x, the option is "grayed out."
