I’m having a few bugs with the “Nero 6 Ultra Edition” which I bought the retail box of, even though it looks as if the memorex 16x DL +/- dvd burner I bought previously already came with the same software. I’d thought the Memorex OEM software would have been limited, but that’s another issue.
Bugs listed in order of annoyance.
Recode 2 has grayed out the option to encode nero digital files in 5.1 surround sound. I can only encode in stereo. One of my codec options is gone. I can still burn the 5.1 dvd soundtracks to dvd format.
“Do Not Eject Disk After Burn” checkboxes are a joke. This damn program still ejects everything, no matter how many times you check the box (or uncheck it, whatever) … and no matter in how many different nero aps you specify it not to do it in.
Nero BackItUp is non-functional. The Burn Icon is grayed out as well.
I actually went so far as formatting my hard drive, reinstalling my OS (Windows XP Home SP2), all my hardware drivers, and then reinstalling the latest versions of the Nero 6 Burning Rom and NeroVision Express downloads (Nero 188.8.131.52 Jan 17, 2005 and NVE 184.108.40.206 Jan 10, 2005) to ensure I had no software conflicts. No luck. And it wasn’t the fastest process in the world, either.
I’ve got a Dell 8250, Pentium 4, 2.4. Soundblaster Live! 5.1 Digital SoundCard. 64MB nVidia GeForce 4 MX420 Video Card. 512 MB PC1066 RDRAM. 650GB Internal Hard Drive Space.
Tech Support is a joke.
Their first couple answers were along the lines of “make sure the title you are trying to encode has a 5.1 sound track.” duh! Then it turned into “I can’t make this happen to me. Must not be anything wrong.”
Damn program worked great when I was stealing it. Now that I tried to pay for it (twice), it has all these bugs.
I’ve got the Nero 6 Ultra Edition Serial Number, and the PowerPack Lame MP3 Plug-in Serial Number. Am I missing something?
