I’m sad and frustrated

Can I install and run NERO from another hard drive except C:/ ? If so how do I get it to load into drive D:/ ?

When I had my computer built I had a 1TB hard drive and a 500GB SSD instaled. I informed the builders I wanted the SSD reserved for gaming only. They designated it as Drive C: so that all system programs and most everything else is on the SSD drive. Now I am out of room on the SSD and am unable to burn a movie because there is not enough room for temp files. Is there a way I can load from disk to my actual hard drive (D:) to load and run NERO?

  • A couple of years ago, we had a long running conversation about how to do that with, I think, v11. I think Nero fixed it so you could. If you have v14, I'm not sure that the installation procedure allows you to specify where to install it.

    However, if you open Nero Video and select any of the "Make" type options or a specific disc project such as DVD, click on Options after it opens. Select Application Settings. In the Folders tab, you can specify the location for temporary and other files. That was one of the things that didn't work when we had that long discussion but I think it works now. All I can say is try it.

    Are you running in ACHI so that the Trim function for your SSD works?

    This worked incredibly well! Thank you so much. I was able to designate multiple different folders that I will be using into drive D: so now I believe I will have no more problems with this!
    Unfortunately I have no idea what ACHI is or the trim function. I'm an old man and play one on-line game. before that it was asteroids on Atari that I bought for my kids, then they moved up to the Nintendo 64. I just have a lot of family videos etc. that I want to get burned onto disk. I think I'm not doing badly for only having a computer for 5 years. (This one is brand new only about 3 mos. old).
    I can still remember taking "Computer Science" classes in college, we were using punch cards, and thought mag tape was the greatest thing since white bread! LOL

  • On a SSD, you can't free up space just by deleting files. There is a function called TRIM which let's the operating system know that the files are no longer considered in use and the memory can be cleared. If your SSD has the TRIM function, your system needs to be using AHCI. That needs to be set in the BIOS. However, in Vista and Win 7, an additional operation has to be performed before setting the BIOS to use AHCI. You might want to check it out. If you bought the system from a vendor such as HP, ASUS, etc. with the SSD installed, it's probably set correctly.

    In any case, I'm glad it worked.

    Enjoy!

  • Donald:
    At the beginning of the Nero installation, a 'custom' installation can be selected. Choosing the custom installation allows the user to deselect unneeded Nero components and, at the bottom of the dialog, to change the drive letter, etc., of the installation folder.
