Windows 7: Bye Bye NERO - Don't need your Bloat anymore

Bye Bye NERO - Don't need your Bloat anymore

Hi all
another old favorite's time has come
Up to Rel 6 this was a GREAT program -even R7 was tolerable but now so much BLOAT and it doesn't even have the ISO virtual Image mounter any more.

Anyway It's now Binned.

(Note to any budding developers -- NERO will become a CLASSIC in future of a perfect example of how to RUIN a very good product which at the time was the clear market leader).

Keep to the core functionality and avoid HUGE "FEATUREITUS".

For burning ISO's the built in Windows 7 burning program is excellent otherwise there's great FREE / cheap alternatives.

The Windows 7 program doesn't give "Calibration Errors" and burns (and verifies) where Nero just gives up.

Ultra iSO is also a good one -- but loads of others and they have a Virtual ISO mounter too.

Im with you Jimbo, Nero is a perfect example of killing a good product. I will still you Nero 7 on my older laptop to do avi to DVD in one click. Im sure i will find something better and move on.

I traded in Nero for Ultra ISO a couple of years ago. I do like Nero Vision for a down and dirty, but still useful, video editor.

i ditched nero a while back also - but as Antman said, nero vision was/is pretty good for making custom dvds, and had a half decent (if somewhat flakey) menu editor too...

i tried a few freebie alternatives - i liked cdburnerxp for a while, but then it started bugging me, and i just couldn't stand imgburn, so i had to spend some money on ashampoo burning studio 9, which does pretty much all i want - but i do still miss nero vision...sigh..

IMGBurn and CDBurnerXP Pro are now my burning softwares of choice. I never should have purchased Nero. Now I combine those two with the built-in functionality of Windows 7, and wow.
