I have an Iomega CDRW 52x24x52 with nero 6 SW. I have upgraded to win 7 and now my original nero SW is not compatible. So what to do?

As much I want you to enjoy your Nero 6 with your newly installed Windows 7, you can't. The reason behind that is Nero 6 is only designed to work up to Windows XP only. So it means it is not compatible with your Windows 7 anymore. My suggestion is you can also upgrade your Nero 6 to the newest version of Nero and that is Nero 10. In that way, you can still use Nero on your Windows 7 machine. Nero 10 gives a lot of new feature that you will enjoy like for example, you can now share HD video to Youtube, and a lot more.

I hope I answered your question.
Thanks a lot!!

Nero installation problem

If you have a version below 7, then Nero will not work with Vista. It was a well known issue with Vista and a reason why some people I know wouldn't upgrade to it.
