bullshit.
I have a friend of a friend(who conveniently for legal purposes I can't

pirated(generated) Key.

Here's a radical possibility... Is it possible that different people are

A word of warning to everyone about SP2. Nero versions earlier than 6.2
will not work with SP2 *AND* to get the upgrade you have to pay. Updates
from Nero are free, upgrades are not.

That bit me in the ass yesterday!!!
