Nero won't erase any RW media anymore

I was a user of Nero 6, which was working great. Then, I wanted to try Nero 7, which I disliked, too huge an app for what I need. But since I installed Nero 7, Nero won’t erase any CD-RW media anymore. I came back to Nero 6, which won’t erase media no more too. When I try to erase one, it says it only sees it as a “CD-Rom Read Only” media, so it says it cannot be erased. Then, I use Alcohol 120% to erase it, and after that, Nero sees it as a CD-RW and I can burn. I changed the ASPI drivers to 4.60, didn’t solve my problem. I’m running Windows XP SP2 up to date. I have 2 LG DVD burners, 4167B and H22L Lightscribe. It won’t erase with either.

Anyone has an idea for Nero to be able to erase my discs again? I’m using, but had the same problem.


Probably Alcohol causing this.

In Alcohol, go to Emulation, and make sure “Ignore Media Type” is not checked.

Nope that helps. :slight_smile:

Didn’t think of that. Will check this out tonight when I get home. Hopefully, it’ll solve the problem. Thanks.

It did the trick!! Thanks a lot!!

You’re welcome! :slight_smile:
