Any help?

You need to get a MOD to remove your Nero key code!

[QUOTE=G_Ivan Awfulitch;2268744]You need to get a MOD to remove your Nero key code![/QUOTE]

???

PLEASE EXPLAIN !!!

From that serial, i do not think that it;s original.

A Google Search (http://www.google.com) for the N e r o v7 Serial Number posted in Forum Member preko #3 posting reveals numerous hits (136).

Why is Forum Member preko ‘personal’ (one of a kind) N e r o v7 Serial Number readily available on the InterNet?

Turn on your DMA for the 212. It is off. Should be on. That is why it is slow.

By the way, your Nero serial number is “PIRATED”.

[QUOTE=pfloyd1;2268981]Turn on your DMA for the 212. It is off. Should be on. That is why it is slow.[/QUOTE]

I try with DMA, everything looks like OK, but in the middle of the burning (at 49%) recording process stoped. After reseting computer, try once again - same sh*t, but at 4%.

Thanks anyway!!!
