Just a question here.I've got a pc with dvd drive which I bought many years ago and installed Nero 5.5 which I also had bought seperately and been running fine for many years.
Recently I wanted to upgrade my drive (d/layer,and speed) bought a drive (LG brand) and it came with a bundled Nero Express OEM version.It doesn't include the Nero Burning ROM unless I purchase it online.
I tried to reinstalled my old Nero to the new drive but was not detected.
My question is why is it so ?
Why is it the new drive can only be detected by the bundled software but not with the Nero which I had purchased years earlier ?:(

Have you tied to update the firmware of the drive? I'm sure somewhere on LG's website you can download them.

Firmware is funny thing. My brother had to downgrade his on a dvd drive as after upgrading it windows didn't recognise the drive.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
