Nero - no recorder is available - why?

In Nero no recorder (apart from ‘Image recorder’) is available. How can that be?

My recorder is a LiteOn-411SX-02C (same as LiteOn-411S only eXternal model).
The recorder can be “seen” by the pc as a network drive - so it is “there”.
It also plays DVD’s and CD’s very well. Only the recording is NOT available

Please help as this is getting really frustrating. Thank you very much in advance.

What version of Nero are you using ?
If you still use an older 5.5.x.x, it could be that that version is too old to know your burner. In this case, update to (available

In case you’re using an early Nero v6.x.x.x, first try updating to

In case you’re using a recent version ( or, there is probably something wrong with the installation of Nero. Uninstall it completely, use the tools from to clean up both all “nero files” and your registry.
After removing everything from Nero, reboot and reinstall the current version.
This should work.

Guys i have the same problem.I’m using the Nero Express and i don’t use INCD. But i checked the Nero site there are updates only for 6th versions. So what do i do?

Why dredge up a 3yr old thread for heavens sake.

because i found it on google and i really need to solve this problem and instead of make a new SPAM thread let’s discuss it here? or i have another topic created already

You don’t mention what burner you have…I’d say your Nero version is way to old to recognize the burner.

It’s a shame you didn’t mention the version you have installed in the other thread you created where we’ve been trying to help you.

As [B]Rolling56[/B] says it’s likely that tat version is too old to support your burner.

yeah yeah i’m a bad guy now because i’m not good in all that recorder/burn/cd-rom/nero/imgburn/daemon/alcoholl stuff. so i just have to go and update my nero then? on

You’re all really gonna love this - ready? First you need to be logged on as a local Admin on your PC - open Nero Start Smart, Toggle to Advanced tasks, select the Extras Tab, Scroll over and you will now see an option for “Configure Burn Rights”! Give "Everybody rights! Reboot…dunta ta du dun da…your Poweruser or Limited Accounts can now choose the burner.
