I am having problems with Nero 18.104.22.168 and Vista Home 64. Whenever I attempt to burn a data cd (all I've tried so far) it goes to 5% and then just nothing for a few minutes... then it will be "Not responding" and I'll have to tell Windows to "End Task." Often at that point Nero will say that it failed to write the disc.
Trying one right now and it appears to have locked up 1minute and 40 seconds into it.... still at the same 5% it virtually started on.
I have much more testing to do. I've read from this dvd drive, but have not had any successful writes. Sadly, I had the same type of errors before getting Nero 22.214.171.124, so I'm not blaming Nero at the moment. I'll edit in further info as I test this.
