Does anyone know how Nero’s serial number “upgrade” works?
I have a legitimate copy of Nero 5, and a legitimate copy of Nero Express (I think it’s either 5.5 or 6, not sure). I don’t have the original Nero 5 CD, and I don’t have the serial number any longer (it is probably stored in the registry somewhere), and it’s locked to the TDK CDRW drive I already own anyway.
I just got a new DVD+RW drive (thanks man!) and need to upgrade to Nero 6 to use it.
Nero sells an upgrade SN for US$40 (or I can buy a whole new copy for $80). If I use the SN upgrade method, do I need the old CDs in hand, or does it just need to scan the drive/registry for the information? Also, will it allow me to use the new drive or will it be locked to my old TDK drive?
