I haven't bought the suite. I have used differing versions of the OEM
disks that came with my optical drives. When I upgraded the burner in
my Socket 478 workstation (fully patched Windows 2000) I could not get
the Nero 6 Suite to work. It would crash every time you run the
nero.exe (Nero Express) application. Downloading and installing the
updates fixed it.

Anyways I do see your point, and your last point especially is well

I have used Nero for many, many years, on many generations of AMD
processors. I have used Nero on 32 bit and 64 bit versions of Windows. I
can state unequivocally that I have never once, in the years that I have
used Nero, had an issue with running it on an AMD processor.

I would argue that either the OP has an issue with the MB chipset, or
another driver that causes the issue.

The issue is most certainly *NOT* with the AMD processor.
