Having major issues with reformatting Acer Aspire One


Sure, calm down. You need to get a bootable cd like UBCD. This cd not only boots, but installs a cd driver, allowing full access of CD Drive in a DOS Environment. Check out the UBCD website, download it, and turn the computer on, with the cd in the drive, your computer will boot, so boot the cd, when the options load, hit the key "r", and windows will repair.
Good Luck

XP should recognize it any way.
Nero capabilities depends on clean install/version of itself.

XP SP3 runs fine with Nero 7 again without that mindexerror popup

Propably you installed SP3 and had Norton also there being the virus?

My computer does not recognize my Sansa Fuze.


Windows XP Professional Edition causes problems for many mp3 players - it actually reformats the player in a way that one or the other computer cannot properly use it. I would reformat your mp3 player and start over froms cratch (or avoid the problem computer).
