You need to be a member of the Administrator group in Win XP to be able to use Nero.
Or you can download some program Nero offers to overcome this, which I do not know if it is free...

You say if you were using XP home or XP pro. Yes Nero can be funny about this, it is a pain. You have to set your user profile to an administrator for it to work. IT Sucks. John
