Nero 7 makes skippy audio CDs SOLUTION

Found this on another forum:

There is only one fix and it has nothing to do with drive firmware, motherboard drivers, media type etc.

The problem is a single file, ‘mp3PRO.dll’ which you’ll find in:

C:\Program Files\Common Files\Ahead\AudioPlugins\

The version that comes with Nero 7 is 2.0.5.0 and for whatever reason, its faulty. If you have Nero 6 still, on the CD goto the following directory:

G:\Nero 6 Ultra Edition\Common Files\AudioPlugins\

(Where G:\ is your CD drive) and inside you’ll find ‘mp3PRO.dll’ version 2.0.0.6. Copy this to:

C:\Program Files\Common Files\Ahead\AudioPlugins\

And overwrite (backup first just in case you need to revert back for whatever reason) the one already in there.

Guaranteed this will solve all your problems with audio CD’s skipping. Its a temporary fix hopefully, till Nero can sort it properly.

It worked for me! Hope this helps!

you are the man, works! (except my 6.0 version was 2.0.4.7)

Has Nero fixed this? If not, maybe it should be stickied as I just answered another post about this problem.

The version on my computer is 2.0.5.1
They must have changed something since release. Don’t know if it has fixed the problem.
