What is upgrading software


To whom it may concern:

I recently purchased a refurbished Medion computer. It has Nero 5.0 burning software installed on it. Though used, it has 2.6 mhz, large hard drive, 512 megs of ram etc. My old system was a Compac 2255 computer about 300mhz, 4 gig harddrive, 32 megs of ram Because my old computer lacked certain abilities, I purchased a Yamaha CD recorder with Nero 5.5 on it. I wanted to add my external Yamaha CD recorder to the Medion system. A prompt came up noting a new version of Nero. It would erase the old version and install the new. What will happen the Medion CD burner? Will it cease to funtion or will I have two CD burners that operate on 5.5? Or should I just chuck the Yamaha external CD burner?

Thanking you in advance,

Hi Bob,

No need to worry as far as i can see You are just going to simply upgrade the nero burning software which does not effect the actual phycical cd burners Your just upgrading to a newer version of software which should be fine Both Cd Burners should work just fine.

I hope this has helped you

Good Luck
