What version of Nero are you using; also, remember,some copyrighted CD's and DVD's will not copy and you will get that error message, or the system will just "hang". I had Nere 5.5 with updates, but ended up getting Nero 6.0 (and the updates) - believe me, you'll soon see the difference. It may be worh looking at the manual, there are two steps to shutting down the programme as a rule, it could be you're not using both.

Sometimes uninstalling the programme then re-installing it MAY make the problem go away, but not always. Quite often the main problem seems to be how good is the media you're copying onto, for instance are you tryig to copy a DVD+R to a DVD-R or something equally daft.

You may also try getting new drivers for Nero from the site, you'll not have to worry about the support from them, just go to the Downloads section and get the correct section for your software. Be careful though, Nero 6 has 4 different sections, and for something like InCD, you need three of them!

copy dvd-r to dvd+r

I take it from your comment that coying from dvd-r format to dvd+r doesn't work? I have a collection of dvd-r disks that I would like to burn to my computer's dvd+r drive.

I had problems with Nero - ended up uninstalling InCD as it conflicts with XP a bit. XP has it's own version which is made by "Roxio" under license. In any case make sure you have the latest updates (InCD ver4 I think is the latest)
Also, if you have nero version 5.5 you most certainly need to make sure you have the latest updates - best to go to nero's ftp site as I was not always able to get the latest updates from their usual web page - there are 2 main ftp sites and I suggest you look at both, namely and

From memory I think I also had similar problems when exiting nero and it didn't like the burned CD being ejected before exiting. Try changing this in the options section (ie dont eject after burning is complete).
Hope this helps
