I wrote to Nero asking about its compatibility with windows 7 and they told me it was not and offered me a deal on Nero 9. Well I would not take NO for an answer and started to play around with it because according to this windows site it is compatible. I had checked with the Windows 7 advisor and found this info.
Nero 7 with Windows 7
I think I simply installed as Administrator rights and it has been working ever since I installed windows 7. I even gave a copy of my Nero 7 to my friend and it is working on his windows 7 as well. It must be working in compatibility mode but it works with the 64 bit Win 7.
I mentioned this is a post a long time ago.
But once in a blue moon a downloaded movie will show video but no sound. So I downloaded the codex pack from your post. I got a message that I need to make sure I had an updated copy of DirectX which I downloaded first. The the codex pack but when I tried to burn a recent movie using Nero 7 there was no sound. The same movie had video and sound when played with Windows Media player. So I did a complete uninstall and remember one screen asking if I wanted to remove all settings. I clicked Yes. Went back to Windows player and there was no sound. I then did a complete reinstall of the codex pack and I got the sound back in WP but not Nero 7.
So hence I went back to the restore point I had created and all was fine.
So I have no idea if I did something incorrectly with the codex download but whatever happened I couldn't get audio with Nero 7. It's Funny because Nero 7 works so well with all the other movies I download for my GD.. She likes the Disney movies like Dumbo, Cinderella, Smurfs etc
