Are you sure its not Nero7 that sees a CDROM drive? From Start button, choose Computer. Under Devices with Removable Storage you'll see your DVD drive letter. Showing as CDROM only there? Right click on the DVD drive and check through it's properties. plasmastorm May 22, 2010 2:37:10 PM The official line from nero is to use Nero 9 with Win 7. However, Nero 7 works just fine. Have been using it myself since it came out on Windows 7 64bit pro. And before that on Vista 64bit pro. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
