This error occurs when the computer does not recognize the drive letter that you
are installing the program into. To fix this problem, you will need to temporarily
change the letter of you CD-ROM drive.

Here is what you need to do:

1. Right click on "My Computer"

2. Select "Properties"

3. Click on the Device Manager tab

4. Click on the "+" sign next to where it says CD-ROM drive.

5. When you click on the plus, you will see a new item under where it says CD-ROM
drive, which indicates the brand name. Right-click on the name.

6. Select Properties

7. Click on the tab at the top that is labeled "Settings"

8. In this window you will see a section that says "Reserved drive letters"

9. Depending on your error, you will need to change the letter that appears next
to "Reserved drive letter". If the error was "Invalid drive E," then change the drive
letter to the letter E. If the error referred to drive "D", then change the drive
to D.

10. Press "OK"

11. Install the program

12. Once the program is installed, you can repeat the above steps to change the drive
letter back to its original setting.

Did you ever have a drive H:?
You MIGHT try pointing H: to C: and see what happens - in computer manager --> disk manager (or whatever it's called in Vista) --> change or add drive letter and you can add it.
Or you might try putting in a flash drive, calling it H:\, and see if it drops files on there, temp installation files or something.
Not much of a Vista expert, though, sorry.

Are you installing Nero from drive H? Do you have another drive to install it from?
