    Smile Internal Dvd writer and External Dvd Writer

    hi folks

    ive got an internal dvd writer (8x asus dual format) and an external usb2.0 dvd writer (hp 300n 4x +r/+rw)

    am i able to 2 burn 2 dvds at the same time with different programs? eg

    use nero burning rom to burn a mp3 dvd (internal)and while thats burning use another burning program to burn a dvd via the external writer?

    run amd xp2500 @ xp3200, 512 megs ddr 400 (dual channel mode) , win xp pro

    when used on their own, they use only about 10% of cpu processing.

    In theory a nice idea. In pratice.......I would think you'll cause errors.

    Nero can do multiple burners so it says. With a registered version.

    Of V6 Nero reloaded. As it says on the Nero site.

    Nero max. 7 & Nero max. 32 recorders. Simultaneous burning on up to 7 or up to 32 recorders with Nero 6 Reloaded!

    The professional extensions for Nero 6 Reloaded supplement the burn function of Nero Burning ROM and allow you to burn on up to 7 or up to 32 recorders at the same time.

    Unless you are running several sessions of Nero it has to use the same burn strategy with each drive. That usually means all drives have to be the same model.

    Nope, when it says multiple, I would say it means any file not the same one, burning at the same time.

    It says nothing about burning the same file.

    It doesnt say it has to be the same model burner either. With multiple copies of Nero running.

    I might actually try it see what happens. I use a cd burner and a dvd burner.

    Ran Nero Express . Made an MP3 CD. It was fine. Played OK.

    And ran Nerovision to burn a DVD of a wedding, at the same time. The cd burner burned at 24x (since the blank was 24x)

    Works OK too. These are on 2 internal burners tho...BUT all is working.

    The DVD burned at 4x since this is the speed of the blank DVD.

    The cd burner is an Asus 52x24x52. The dvd burner is an Asus DWR-1604P 16x

    cheers for that speedy so you just opened up to instances of nero for each file and burner and ran them at the same time aye?. i guess these days with all cd writers and dvd writers with buffer protection it should be fine :-)

    thanks for the test. ill have a go myself tomorrow and let you know how i went

    Well, theyre actually different programs.

    Nero (The main program), and Nerovision (Which is a separate download from Nero - Package 2 - 34mb), on the Nero site.

    Which deals mostly with burning to DVD/Video stuff.

    BUT yup, both worked fine. And umm, as u can see, they DON'T have to be the same burner, the same file, or the same speed, to burn whatever at the same time
