I had NERO & InCD on my old puter (now my granddaughter has it) - and I missed NERO ooohhhh soooo much, so I broke down and forked out the cash for NERO 5 Burning ROM. I installed it and updated it to 126.96.36.199 and burned a CD ( feeling an instant sense of satisfaction) which reminded me of what I have missed for the past four months - having to use the "wimpy" HP Record Now that came with my new puter! That brings me to the topic at hand - from what I have read - it seems like Nero Express is better left alone. If I am happy with NERO by itself - just leave Express alone. RIGHT???? BTW - has anyone used the NERO Media Player that comeas on the NERO 5 Burning ROM CD?? I have not installed it yet - as I have not heard any pros or cons on it yet! Any thoughts/advice????
