OK I downloaded Nero CD-DVD Speed 126.96.36.199 off a link from this site and just double clicked the Executable within the Zip and the proggy pops up. Just took a general look around and popped in a disk to see the general disk info, and that was OK. Now I cant remember what else I was looking at but I clicked on an option to do a test. After a period of waiting I discovered the hourglass was not getting anywhere, in short I discovered the program wasn’t responding. No matter what I did I couldn’t get it to quit. The HDD light was on full tack, and I couldn’t remove the CD. Taskmanager wouldn’t kill the task either and the only way I quit CD-DVD speed was to hard reboot the pooter. Ive never ever had to do this before with any utility that locked up!
Now to my shame I should have put the program into the Nero Kit folder which I then did, which overwrote the old version. So I bring the program up again and put a CD in and accessed the CD info OK as before. Tried to do a disk Quality test and the same deal again !!! :a
I’d appreciate it if someone could help me out if they can spot something that is glaringly wrong so I don’t have to do another hard boot if possible.
OK some questions.
Have I installed it wrong somehow?
On copying CD-DVD speed into the correct place I now have 2 instances of it. Could that cause it to lock up?
Is CD-DVD speed interdependant on the other Nero utilities in that all components need to be the latest version? In other words is my Nero Express Version 188.8.131.52 ( :o ) “clashing” with CD-DVD Speed?
What about the other tool in the same “Nero toolkit” folder “Drive Speed” cant find what version mine is. DO I need to update this as well?
Thanks for any help. Oh if its makes any diff. Im on XP Pro SP2 512MBRam 80gigHDD. Asus CD-RW No DVD (yet)
