Win 7 with Nero 8 problem
by southseeker / March 29, 2013 4:37 PM PDT

Hi Grif and thanks

sorry if I was too sketchy with details, when I stop trying to Install Nero 8 the problem/loop disappears, so I wonder if I can reasonably expect to install "old" Nero 8 in Win 7?? and how to do it/ force it
thanks Grif

Ahh, thanks for that.

Sorry, no you should not force this older version into this newer OS. Why is because it installs an incompatible driver and the OS fails.

Given we have nice enough free replacement apps like CDBURNERXP and IMGBURN to mention just two, why must it be this old software?

Look on the box - I don't believe Nero 8 is compat

I believe you need Nero 9 for Windows 7. That works for me although they're up to version 12 on the market these days. I also use Nero Burn Express with Windows 7. It only costs a fraction of what you'd pay for the full version of Nero software if all you want to do is burn CDs and DVDs.

Good luck.

Tried "System Restore" ?
by Grif Thomas Forum moderator / March 29, 2013 4:51 AM PDT

The next time the computer restarts, immediately start pressing the F8 key, once per second, till a selections screen loads.. Use the up/down arrow keys to select "Safe Mode", then press the "Enter" key and allow it to boot to Safe Mode. Once there, navigate to System Restore and go back in time to BEFORE the problem occurred.

If you can't access System Restore in Safe Mode or Normal Windows, then perform the same steps, using the F8 key immediately after startup, then use the up/down arrow keys to select "Last Known Good Configuration", then press the "Enter" key. Follow the prompts and allow the computer to restart and go back to when things were good.

Hope this helps.
