Question about Ahead Software Nero 5.5 (NERO5.5) for PC

Version -- not writing to disc for backup?

Help. I've tried twice to backup two different items (1st - all pics on our system; 2nd - all files in 'my docs') and both times Nero BackItUp says completed but with problems. When I try to see the files on the DVD-R it's blank. The first time I tried, I'd left the house & upon return the computer had shut down. When I rebooted it didn't recognize the E: drive & I couldn't eject the DVD. I used the 'paperclip' method, after turning it off and was able to remove the DVD. I've only burned a couple of times, over a year ago so am a total novice at this whole thing. Thanks for any help you can provide.

I purchased two NTI Backup Now EZ backup drives and have not been able to get either to backup anything off my Sony Vaio E w/Win 7. The system is 500G w/4G RAM.

You will have to contact the company directly. Each system is different enough that you will need their help troubleshooting the issues.

I am trying to backup using winzip 11.2 version. If I use dvd+r's it backs up 4.37 GB but if I use dvd+rw's it is much less.

Yes. Because the space available on rewritable discs will be less than the space available on write once discs.

Tally v7.2 educational error

  1. You can make a system restore point while installing Tally. But before restoring the same point you should remember that you data can be lost in this process so take an external backup of your data on CD etc.
  2. You can go in back dates by changing system date and see if Tally is working or not (Some times it works !!).
  3. You can insure that your system name, lan cards etc. Doesn't change.
  4. If you know that a trouble is coming ahead e.g. you may need to upgrade system or format the system then best solutions is that you first surrender the tally before formatting.
  5. If you are in deep trouble an and cannot connect internet the surrender the tally in offline mode and keep that file in a pen drive or CD along with your data backup.
  6. If you are in much deeper trouble and finds out in the morning that you computer doesn't start windows and last option is to format it again, then try to start windows in DOS mode and recover that data files by copying whole Tally folder in to another drive. Then you can write mail to stating your Sr..No and contact person name to reset your licensing info. Wait for the response and then activate the Tally.
Thanks for using fixya.....

My 0xc000000c "Restore Failed" prompt seemed to be the result of disk surface damage on the restore disk. After burning the restore disk to a new disk, the restore proceeded normally. Try making a copy of the original restore disk to a known good blank disk.

Is ahead nero 6 I believe. wont read disc's now

The Nero burner has (or had) an incompatibility issue with xp, and I believe it was with Nero 5 or 6 that it first arose...It's possible you're experiencing repercussions from that. You're not alone.
But you say it did work fine for awhile with xp, right? And it will play cd's, right? Let's go through some options...
  • First off, have you ever updated the drivers for the cd-rw device itself? Old firmware that was written for the early days of xp has most likely been updated with newer versions, in part to overcome precisely these sorts of problems. Try to work through the following tutorial and update your hardware drivers. Your system will run smoother as a result. Then try to burn a cd and see if it works.
  • Have you tried burning using the xp burner in windows explorer to burn a cd? (Open explorer, select a file to write to cd, right click it and send to cd-rw drive, then write these files to disc. If that detects the disc, software is probably to blame.
  • You could try a different brand of media. Some cd's are so cheap they barely meet the standards. But you say you've tried this.
  • You might try blowing off the lens inside the cd drive with a puff of compressed air, or purchasing a cd/dvd cleaner disc and running it.
  • You could visit Nero and upgrade to a newer version. You should be able to get a discount if you have a license for the Nero 6. At least make sure your version has all the updates that apply to it installed.
These steps will have ruled out most simple mechanical failures, and device conflicts. If they don't work, I'd suspect a software incompatibility is at the root of the problem...
  • I would not normally recommend it, but you might try running a (****) cleaner utility like CCLeaner on your system. If you've had this system since ME you've accumulated some debris. Before doing so, make sure you back up all important files and make a backup of the registry. You can back up the registry using the Erunt tool, downloaded from here:
  • Then download CCleaner at this link: and follow this website's instructions to run it: Initially, try running it without cleaning the registry, just cleaning your temp files, etc. After this scan, reboot your system & run a check of the burner to see if it works.
  • If it's still not working, go to system restore and create a restore point, then run CCleaner with the registry entries selected, and when you're asked if you wish to backup the registry, do so by all means. Read through the lists as you go along, and uncheck anything you'd like to keep. (like certain cookies, passwords, etc.) You can always clear them away at a later time, but for the most part they'll be offered to you again when you revisit sites. Then choose fix selected issues, and check your way through, or fix all at once.
These steps should clear the decks a bit, so to speak, and may in and of themselves get your software working as it should. If you've followed these instructions and still have no success,
I would download IMGburn at and see if it will work instead of Nero.
If not, post back and I'll be happy to assist you further.
