    Default HP CD writing

    Hi everyone - me again.
    Two small questions for you :
    1 - a friend of mine has recently brought a new HP (cant remember the number), it comes with a CDWR and DVD - we tried to copy a CD but there didn't appear to be any writer software installed - QUESTION - does HP actually install writer software at build up?
    We have loaded Nero5 and this works.
    2 - my pc (HP 720A - ME - FAT32 - CDWR) has also had Nero5 installed - two things - 1 when the machine boots up it comes up with a banner (or similar) for a CD writer program - this has an icon on the taskbar BUT it has a red exclaimation mark on it.
    The other thing is when you go into Nero there is no executable file.

    Any help would be really appreciated

    Yes they should. It's called RecordNowMax if I recall correctly.

    Second part - right click on the red arrow in bottom bar - 0pen properties - option - tick the box - do not display start up etc.

    Thanks people - I had a look this morning and the program that loads on startup is InCD - this then drops to the task bar with the red exclaimation mark.
    Will have a look tonight to see if the path given will find the Nero5 .exe

    Thanks again
