Hi, Welcome to everybody, I am new to this forum.

Until now I used Nero 6 with no problems. I downloaded Nero 8 and I wanted to use Nero Image Drive (version to watch some of my videos saved as image files (.iso) through Windows Media Player 9. I did exactly the same as I had done earlier with Nero 6. I initiated Nero Image Drive, located the image file (placed in the drive) and on appearing the box "What should Windows do" I click Play DVD (Windows Media Player). Media Player starts, but there is no sound. What should I set in Winows Media Player? Do I need some extra codec? Do I need some extra settings in Nero 8? In Nero 6 the same worked well.

Thanks for any help or advice in advance.

Hi there,

I'm no professional with the Windows Media Player, but Playback of ISO images should be possible with Nero Showtime.

Best regards

To answer your question, yes, you may need to download some codecs for the DVD/Video image file to work properly. There is a codec pack available called "K-Lite Codec Pack" available from http://www.free-codecs.com/download/K_lite_codec_pack.htm I use the FULL codec pack. It works very well with every file type/codec need to play them.

And this is somewhat offtopic; Why doesn't the new Nero 9 have/support Nero ImageDrive? It doesn't come with the application, why? And that seems to be the only Nero that works with Windows 7. Is it possible to get an update to Nero 7 to work on Windows 7? Cuz quite frankly... Nero 9 sucks. I'm using the trial and I already can't stand it.

I hope codec pack solves your issue mate. :)

Since V7 is compatible with Vista, you should be able to run it on Win7 in Vista compatibity mode (I think they have that). Elsewise, if you have Pro, Ultimate or Enterprise, you could run V7 under Virtual XP.

V9.4.26 is the only Win 7 certified version. What don't you like about V9. Other than getting rid of some things that you've become comfortable with, it fixed a lot of problems that existed in the older versions and added more capability. Every software maker does the same thing, especially Microsoft, and many of the changes are just plain stupid. Just depends on what you need.

I know this is a bit later.

I can confess I am a novice with some Nero Routines and Window facilities.

When I transfer files from my camcorder and play them from the PC or from a DVD all seems to function satisfactory, my you they are played by a bundled program.

Viewing folder either on the PC and/or DVD the recording seems to consist of 2 sub-folder. I believe one contains the video info and the other I thought the sound.

If this is incorrect I would appreciate being corrected. Then perhaps I can expand my usage of Nero, hopefully without any problems
