Imgburn or cdburnerXP. Both free, both small, both effective, both work fine on Windows 7.

eeerr... Ppl like me still use it ... But You guys are right ....its too bloated! I'll be trying Imgburn and CdburnerXP this weekend.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

I can tell you after using nero for going on a decade it is hard to switch to something else in terms of ease of use.
but after installing recent nero installs on others computers I too am staying away from nero - while most of the bloatware can be disabled you have to wonder why a good burning rom would includes something like nero scout that constantly locks up a computer searching for music files?
imgburn is definitely not as easy as nero but it gets the job done once you figure it out

Win 8.1 Ultimate and Home Premium x64 bit

seems odd that people can't get Nero 8 to work in Win7. I have Ultimate on PC and Home Prem on laptop and have got Nero 8 to work 100% on both. I never had to do anything other than download and install and away it went

Win7 Ultimate 64bit Retail
Solved: Windows 7 incompatability with Nero 8

FIY: I had been using Nero 8 Essentials on Windows 7 Ult Retail with reasonable success, but periodically and regularly got FUBAHs.

I have just built a new PC with Intel Extreme DX58SO2 mobo & i7 960 CPU, and Gigabyte GTX 550 Ti graphcs card; and reloaded Windows 7 Ult 64bit onto it.

Nero 8 went crazy in this system. In efforts to get it to work I wasted about 25 blank TDK +R DVD discs. Among other things I turned off Windows burning sofware, but all to no avail.

The odd burn worked, but 98% didn't. The errors varied from finalizing the disc when I had multi-partitioned it to be able to add data later ... to totally rendering the disc unusable even though it said burn had failed. Sometimes it said poor media.

SOLUTION: I was on the point of abandoning Nero when I finally got part of the answer to the problem from this thread from post 3 by JTT which suggested running Nero in compatability mode for Windows XP SP3. I tried this and although it didn't work, it set me in the right direction.

I next tried running it in compatability mode for Vista (Service Pack 2), and this worked a treat. Not a sinlge bad burn since then.

Thank you JTT! :)

From Jimbo45: "Hi there
I gave up on Nero after version 6. It's just become so much BLOATWARE these days -- good example of people just ruining a great product by just cramming it with "feature-itus" 90% of which aren't used anyway."

Nero addressed that issue thank goodness. They returned to their roots and you can now buy Nero Burning ROM on it's own. It's still the best commercial app for burning.

Nero 10 and Nero Media Home
I am considering upgrading from Nero 8 to Nero 10. However, I am not sure that I need any functionality that I don't have with Nero 8 Ultimate... The one possible exception is Nero Media Home 4... However, in reading it briefly, it doesn't seem like it does a whole lot that isn't available...
I used to use Nero 6, but can't now.
I used to use Nero 6 in win xp but find that this doesn't work anymore in win 7. I am using ImgBurn and find that it works well but that it doesn't allow the user to change the burn speed (or if the setting is there I can't find it). Any ideas for alternative burning software? Thanx
