Do you have that same problem too with Nero 5.5.x?

I assume you have read the various topics posted on this forum in the past and you know that you shouldn’t have DirectCD installed?

What programs are you running in the background?
What other burn programs do you have installed?

You say your system completely freezes. At what point does it freeze? (when starting Nero, when burning audio, when burning data, when burning anything at all, when closing disc)

Have you tried Norton Utilities (Norton Crash Guard)?

I must say your info is a bit scarce and makes it hard to make a diagnose… More information would be welcome and I would recoommend using the search engine, perhaps you can find a solution through there.

And yes it happends on 5.5x

first of all, you should remove EZ 5.

My computer was messed up when i had EZ 5 and nero on my system. It gave me so much grief so i uninstalled EZ 5 and now, no problems.

If you have nero 5.5 x, upgrade it to the newest version.

In the past, i had problems with DirectCD and nero, but since upgrading to the newest version, i have directcd (from an older version–and no EZ creator installed) and nero running at the same time with no problems.

How many people have freeze up problems running the new nero 5.0 and 5.5 and higher, that are running HP9200 and 9200 i scsi burners. And i thing this could be the problem.

And for those of you using the new nero5.5 and up what roms and burner are you using, i am trying very hard to get to the bottom of this problem as i am sure it effects many other users.
