Hi moby58, if you are having problems with Nero or having to spend more money I suggest you try CDBurnerxp PRO. It's free and although I have Nero I tend to use CDBurnerxp PRO most of the time. BTW, don't let the name fool you, it does burn DVDs as well as CDs.

What avi problem are you having, moby58? I suspect it might be that you're missing the MPEG-4 codec. Download the K-lite Codec pack click here see if that cures your avi burning problems.

avi problem media player wont play "avis",only the audio part!i also get an error msg "com surrogate has stopped working"...on further investigation ive been advised i need to upgrade nero to sort it.other suggestions are a bit too advanced for me to tinker with...all to do with windows vista!so i just wanted to double check the price of nero wasnt flexible!

As it's an OEM version, you should be able to update your current version of Nero7 merely by visiting click here and downloading the update.

My original OEM copy of Nero (Version5) which came with a TDK CD-RW drive was freely updated via the Nero website as and when necessary.

The same applied to Nero5.5 and now Nero6.

You can only update a current version of Nero. If you move up a version (i.e. Nero6 to Nero7) then you have to initially pay for the software (unless it comes with a rewriter).

An example of free updating, for instance, is to buy a low cost copy of Nero from BigPockets, SVC or similar outlet and update it via the website up to the latest version of that series.

You install it over the current version on your system.
