I'm not sure but I think there might be some computability issues with Nero, what sort of things were you looking at doing with it?

Thanks for your reply.

I saw Nero 9 on ebay the other day, the retail verison for £22 pound does this sound ok? or is it always best to buy from a shop?

Nero 9 & Windows 7 problem

When I upgraded to Windows 7, I also purchased Nero 9.
The first thing I tried was to do a back up with Nero 9 to a spare hard drive. It froze each time I tried it. It froze in a different place and at a different time, but it always froze. I had Nero 7 and XP prior to this and it never failed. Since it's impossible to contact Microsoft, I contacted Nero.
They've been trying to figure it out for a week. That's my experience.

I've never really been a big fan of Nero or Roxio as they are often very bloated applications when most times you need a simple cd burner application.

I've since moved over to using imgburn. It's free and it works great.

I used to use cdburnerXP...but it tends to max out my CPU for no good reason when I burn disks. I found this being discussed on the CDburnerXP forums...but it wasn't worth fixing as ImgBurn met my needs.

How to save 50% off of Nero9 and get Nero BackItUp free

I just recently purchased Nero9 and saved 50% on it using a method found here:

Digital Afterthought

I got Nero BackItUp & Burn for free too...

I have had NO problems running Nero9 on Windows 7

I would highly recommend it as it is very stable, reliable, and offers many additional plug-ins like Nero Blu-Ray authoring which allows you to edit and create Blu-Ray Movies and DVDs with 2D or 3D menus

Sure you could go freeware but you wont get as many updates or support as you would from Nero

W7 X-64 W8.1 X-64 Opensuse 13.1 W2003 Server

Hi there
I'm still using Nero 7 but only for creating (Viurtual) Audio CD's which I then can burn to Minidiscs (yes I'm still using those).

I mount the Virtual CD with Alcohol 52% Free edition -- it can handle the .NRG nero format. The MD transfer software then burns to MD. Ultra ISO doesn't like mounted Audio .NRG files.

I only use Nero as it can create Audio CD's directly from my FLAC files and write to a "Virtual Audio image file" -- that's ALL I use it for --everything else is just bloat I'm afraid.

If you just want burning / ripping DVD software there's a lot of better options out there -- if I could find a decent "Create Virtual Audio CD images" from FLAC files I'd dump Nero in an instant.

For "Cloning" DVD's (even Blu Ray) Img Burn works fine on Windows 7 even X-64.

Windows 7, 64 bit Home SP1, Win 8.1.1 Pro 64 bit

I have Nero 9. Mainly, I use it for Audio CD burning, as I have a recording studio, and there are no problems. I don't use the Nero backitup as I use Acronis True Image for backups.

Nero has got "bloated" over the years but is heads better than the buggy Roxio. I used Roxio for a long time (started when they were called Adaptec) but had so many problems with each version that I finally gave up. I have problems with an old version (8) of Roxio on a Vista PC and it looks like it's going to take a manual uninstall, including manually editing the registry, to get rid of it as it won't uninstall with uninstall programs.
