Recently have had to reinstall/repair my XP pro twice after the system decided to go very slowly. 15 minutes to load and 5 minutes to load Word. Each time this happened soon after installing Real One but I cannot be sure that this is the cause of the fault. After the first repair I had to install nero three times before it would recognise my Teac DW224E DVD/CDRW combo - a drive supported by nero. The last time I have installed nero three times and it still will not recognise the drive. I have visited the nero website and I have downloaded and installed: 1. the latest version of the software 2. the latest nero driver 3. the latest list of recognised drives. I have used CD Speed and Drivespeed from the nero toolkit and tried Extras/Recognise drive but to no avail. Can anyone help me? Nero cannot or will not.
