Nero 7 problems after a C:/ drive wipe

Recently I needed to wipe my C:/ drive. I had to buy a new external disc drive to do so, and it was the first time I use Nero when I used it's back-up function to back up My Documents.

Now, I am unable to decompress the last disc (it used 5 or 6 discs). The first ones were able to decompress, although the names weren't the same and there were one or two files missing.

I kind of need the files that were on the last disc though. Using 7-Zip or WinRar doesn't do it, and there seems to be no function on Nero at all to reinstall a back-up.

Can someone please help.

Your last backup disk is either dirty, scratched or faulty. If it is dirty clean it in cold water and rinse well with a dry cloth before trying again. If it scratched or faulty because nero didnt finalize burning ( it happens quite often), then there may be nothing to do.
Try unpacking the disks on a different computer, sometimes it works.

Hi Fixya,We have a desktop pc running windows xp and it does not seem to boot up,the screen stays blank but it does tell us there is no signal to it.I suspect the hard drive has got corrupted somehow.Also...


Hello miriamhyman
Extract the corrupted HDD out of your machine and place it in a external usb box .
Install a new hdd inside your computer . You will have to reinstall Windows XP but you can't find it any more at Microsoft's . Here is a place where you can still buy it : http://about.pricegrabber.com/search_attrib.php/page_id=186/form_keyword=windows+xp/rd=1/st=query
or buy a Windows 7 install disc ( the box contains two discs , one for 32-bit systems , the other for 64-bit . One of them will surely be compatible with your BIOS ) . Once done , connect your old hdd to the a USB port of your machine . You will be able to retrieve all your files but you will have to reinstall the programs .
Best regards ,

How to down load windows7 on my hp model p6112 and will it still have my windows email or will it change to some thing else


Go to google, type in windows 7 downloads and thats it. However, the testing cycle for 7 is now finnished and the rtm (retail issue) is now in the marketplace and you will need to buy a disc which can be activated. You cannot upgrade to windows 7 without buying it i'm afraid but I use it and it is fast and furious.

Nero 7 essentials disc but when i try to install it it comes up with message this version dose not support vista


Windows Vista is supported by Nero 7 since the version Nero 7.5.7.0.. Older versions of Nero 7 do not support Windows Vista. If you are trying to install Nero 7 from your original disc it is likely that there is an older version included on this disc. If you want to install Nero 7 on Windows Vista please be sure that you will only use latest Nero 7 version, you can download from the below website. Also please be sure that there won't be any rests of old Nero 7 versions on your system by performing the following steps:

1.
Start uninstalling all old Nero 7 applications and files from your computer using the Nero 7 CleanTool

Download the Nero 7 CleanTool using the following link:
Click here.
Save this file to your desktop.
Unzip the ZIP-file with WinZip or WinRAR and save the content to your hard drive.
Double-click on the unzipped EXE-file to start the CleanTool.
The window “Nero General Clean Tool” will open. The installed Nero version will be displayed.
Activate the checkboxes in the displayed Nero version.
Then click the “Clean” button.
A status window will open.
The execution of the tool may take several minutes.
Please wait until the progress bar has moved completely to the right.
In the window “Nero General Clean Tool” click the “Exit” button as soon as the erasing procedure is completed.
Reboot your computer.
The Nero 7 CleanTool has removed all Nero entries from your computer.

2.
To install the latest Nero 7 version, please proceed as follows:
(Note: do not install a previous Nero 7 version from an installation CD now, but download and install the latest version of Nero 7 from our website. All Nero 7 download versions have the full range of functions as an original Nero 7 installation CD. There is no need to install a previous version of Nero first.)

Download and install the latest Nero 7 version from website using the following link:
Click here.
Save this file to your desktop.
Double-click the downloaded Nero 7 installation file to start the installation.
Enter your Nero 7 serial number during the installation to make your Nero into a permanent version. (The download without a serial number is a trial version only).
You now have a newly installed version of Nero 7 on your computer.

Want to totally clean hard drive to sell computer


All hard drive manufacturers have utilities you can download from their web sites that will write all zeros to your hard drive from a bootup environment.

Then if you get a hold of a copy of Hiren's Boot CD, you boot to this from your CD/DVD drive and select Hard Drive utilites and there is a program called wipe disk.

A free program called GDISK, will wipe a drive according to DOD standards. It doesn't com with a boot loader you can use to boot from your CD/DVD drive, you need to use Nero Express to create a bootup disc using the built in boot image from Nero, add GDISK to it and then once you've booted up, you type the command
gdisk /?
And you will subsequently see command line codes to do a disk wipe. Through trial and error you'll get this right unless you are already comfortable with command line structure.

Hiren's is the best tool and invaluable to have around.
You can find the home page for it here.
