First it started only popping up AFTER I EJECTED the CD I was preparing to write on. Then it would pop up say can't complete and continue doing nicely...Well. I removed Nero, who someone else had put on and I knew with XP's I didnt need the extra one along with the Media Player too....Now, I can only use the media player. The wizard has totally vanishished....I want to burn data CD's to back up, lol I aam late doin it, should've known something would happen first. But [bleep] I been in 2 car wrecks in 3 months and this last 1 a drunk driver brok my neck and needless to say ...I have been side tracked....LMAO..I've had my surgery & I am and will b fine, ty. But really wanna back up tonite....help anyone?
Did I get rid of common files with Nero? I have replaced some I thought, but don't remember alll, musta wrote down wrong...HELP!

Yes I get them there fine, but the wizrd wont pop up until I eject the CD I am going to write on, Then , I can push the cd back in and burn on it then, the wizard will stay till its burned and asks to delete the files like normal.

Remove the CD

Click start, my computer, right click the CD drive, click properties, auto play, put the dot in the opposite one, then click restore defaults, click apply

Nope...didnt do it. Still just gives that irratating boink when I click wrote these files to cd...no wizard pops up....and the nero stuff is stikk in that box too....doesn't even have an option to use the cd writing wizard anymore. just open a writeable folder use aNero and then view photos ro something...no options to use media player either.

You can get a general clean tool to remove Nero better than add and remove
