hello ereryone! i have a problem i just can't figure out. i used this program for a short while with no, problems. now, when i try to burn dvd files from hard disk, i set burn speed to 8x and hit the burn button as usual but, the top box write speed says .6x? and the progress is very slow. when i click file option, and choose current drive properties it says 125.9x? am i going nuts lol! after i abort because of the problem it shows 125.9x in write speed box with no, other options til i put in another blank dvd then shows proper speed options? if i uninstall the software and install the Nero 7 essentials which came with my Sony DRU 830A drive unit i have no problems? but if it is like the program i had before, it will expire soon. the Recode works fine on it but the smart burn feature so i can save dvds in image form no longer works. i will try to find a log file i can post which might be helpful in solving this crazy problem. i'm very desparete, for any help at all lol! Thanks!
