I discovered last week that installing a SCSI pass through, part of some virtual drive software, caused Nero (7.5) and ImgBurn to fail on my home premium big time.

I used to use Daemon Tools without any problems but upon installing that both Nero and ImgBurn stopped working.

It took me a while to trace it but I found the problem - the SCSI controller that gets installed right before it installs Daemon Tools. This is also true for Alcohol 52% & 120%, both of these installed the same SCSI controller and killed Nero.

So I downloaded a few other programs and on first try installed SlySoft Virtual CloneDrive and that looks to have installed a different type of controller altogether and both Nero and ImgBurn work.

Hope that helps someone.

that's weird. i have both nero and daemon tools installed and they both work fine. i've had them working together in both xp pro, vista ultimate 32bit and 64bit without any problems. i think this may be specific to your computer as opposed to a common conflict between nero and daemon tools.

Oh i've never had a problem with DT on XP, ran perfectly, just vista and it's not specifically DT but as I said Alcohol caused the same problem. I've got a working solution now but my point was more a heads up in case anyone else encounters strange happenings after installing similar software.

I have found many crashes/problems with Daemon Tools and Vista, and now I use MagicISO Virtual CD/DVD-ROM

I am assuming that you guys are all using 32bit versions of Vista? Only reason being is that I have not seen any problems when I have used it on my 64bit copy of Vista Business.

Yip, 32 bit

I was going to try MagicISO, downloaded that and 7Zip but since virtual clone worked didn't bother!

I do run Vista with SP1, but even earlier I had problems with Daemon Tools and thus switched to MagicISO and also I use TUGZip
