Is ASPI setup properly on your computer? I am unfamiliar with how Vista handles ASPI but if it is anything like 98, 2000, and XP then you need to setup ASPI yourself. I realize that your burning was working fine a month ago but nevertheless I think that making sure that ASPI is properly setup is a good first step to take (especially if you've formatted recently). See here for some general help: http://www.afterdawn.com/guides/archive/aspisetup.cfm and http://www.doom9.org/index.html?/aspi.htm

people still have problems with nero 8 and vista.. thats why i suggested nero lite.

heres something else you can try:

Has nero 8 asked you to install directx 9.0c? cause if it didnt you need to..
even though vista has directx 10 built in you still need to install directx 9.

If that doesnt work its probably your drive.. have you gone in your case recently?
