I previously installed the OEM version (or is it a demo?) of Nero (which came bundled with an AOpen 32x12x48 drive) on our Win98SE PC. Then I downloaded and installed a newer version from the Nero website. I recently sold the AOpen and replaced it with a Samsung 40x12x40 unit.
When I saw that my installed Nero did not recognise the Samsung drive, I tried installing the Samsung bundled version of Nero. The installer program requests that the existing version be uninstalled, which it tries to do. However, the uninstaller wants something which it indicates is located in ‘1’. It can’t find the file(s) and exits. I think it wants is the .msi file for Nero (possibly the preceding version’s). I also sold the CD for the AOpen version Nero.
I’ve tried installing just the downloaded demo version, but this creates a “web install” entry in Windows’ program list. I cannot uninstall the “Nero - Burning Rom” entry and therefore can’t install the version which will recognise my new drive.
Someone please help!
