I used Nero 9, was so unhappy how it performed, besides it being a hog of HD space...I re-verted back to 8 Ultra

Just for your info...Nero 9 updated:

I already got Nero 8.3.2.1 but I haven't install it yet

I'm gonna try that later. Thanks a lot
Ahhh, no need to feel shame at all

Nero has a good PR/Marketing team as well as other CD/DVD burning software vendors. In this regard, they were able to make Nero synonymous with burning, which down plays the native burning functionality of windows.

Plus don't forget the fact the most OEMs partner with some 3rd party CD/DVD burning vendors to ship with their products for free to make their own product more marketable and don't highlight the fact that your OS comes with a built-in fully functional burning capability without the need for any complex burning softwares. In fairness, 3rd party burning softwares offer a more robust way of burning that offer a lot of other functionality and integration that is not offered natively.

So not a lot of people are really aware that their OS can easily do burning tasks.

Nero always was the number one choice for burning for many people.
Roxio a close second.

Why doesn't MS just market and/or mention a little more this feature to less knowledgeable people out there?
Would be nice, then stress about just going out and buying third party software to burn a simple data file or large program.

I never knew that

Back then the first software that I use to burn was Nero so I can't think of anything else and haven't tried other than that


Thanks

LOL! Yes, I totally agree

Honestly, idk why M$ doesn't educate people of the native CD/DVD support included in their OS. It has been around since XP

If you've experienced seeking burning assistance from OEM's tech support, they'd alway revert back to having customers use the windows native burning support and just have them uninstall the 3rd party app that's causing the difficulties, funny ain't it?

On the good side...

Quote:
Microsoft has learned that some OEMs are incurring sizable support costs that are associated with having multiple optical burn engines that are installed on customer systems. Therefore, some OEMs will require ISVs to migrate to IMAPIv2.0 in order to reduce the number of burn engines that are shipped. IMAPIv2.0 will enable ISVs to use only one set of APIs for optical burning that includes DVD burning capabilities for the following operating systems:
  • Windows Vista
  • Windows XP
  • Windows Server 2003
Key features
The key features include the following:
  • The ability to record DVD media types.
  • Bring parity to the in-box optical burning capabilities for Windows XP and for Windows Server 2003.
Benefits
The benefits include the following:
  • Reduction in support costs that are caused by managing multiple incompatible burn engines that are installed on a single system.
  • Enable OEMs to change the ISV optical burning software on customer systems without requiring a major test pass of the images.

Bad news I already try to use Nero 8.3.2.1 but it still has the same problem

"Power Callibration Error"

Is it has something to do with the Disc? Or my drive?

I also try to use the native burning services by Windows and it won't work.

I choose "Use as USB/Flash Drive" then it failed to format the disc.
I choose "Use to Audio/DVD player", drag the files, then "Burn To Disc" but it won't work


I guess I'll just go to borrow my friend's computer to burn my files since I'm desperate to Back Up my overloaded files...

I too often read comments, online, with people crying about how Nero is too big, and installs lots of unnecessary crap, or Nero steals all file associations, or ran away with my missus etc

That might happen if you don't choose to do a Custom install of Nero. What else would anyone expect that it would do ?

If you do a Custom install, it is very simple to choose which components and associations you wish to install .

Too easy if you pay attention while doing the install, and probably not really a problem if you don't .

Nero Burning Rom and NeroVision Express are working fine for me .
