With Nero, should I make any changes in XP?

    If I am going to use the latest Nero to do all my burnin (I've always used XP's built in until now), Should I disable XP's built in support? Or should I just install Nero and use it, making no changes to any configurations in XP?

    No changes are needed in XP. You've made a good choice going to Nero instead of using XP's burning feature.

    Actually that's not true...
    Under services(services.msc) you will need to disable IMAPI CD-Burning COM Service for Nero to function at it's greatest potential :)

    Didn't notice any difference whether I disabled Imapi CD-Burning COM Service or not. Nero just runs fine.

    Well according to Nero it helps ;) Besides if you're not going to use the service, what's the point in running it?

    in my case, disabling the freaking dumb thing fixed Nero and now

    Friend of Bill What, me worry?

    I run Alcohol 120% and CloneCD without ever disabling the burning service. UT II and UT2003 have been "backed-up" for future reference to boot!:D

    Hmmm, I didn't have much luck with it. I think I made a couple coasters by trying to use that feature. Nero is the best IMHO. :)

    I disabled the service as it was recommended at www.blackviper.com in the XP services configurations. This was only to save on my memory resources but I bet it does help if you disable it so program's can run flawlessly without any disturbances in resources.
