ImgBurn does all my ISO creation and burning. It's simple and never fails.
So as 'they' say, "different strokes for different folks".
Each person has to decide what works best for him/her and then use that program.
Just like I've tried every OS from DOS 2.0 to Windows 8.1/64 and I find that XP-Pro-SP3 works best for my needs and desires. Go figure!
My computer is feature rich and capable of running any OS in 32 bit or 64 bit mode, yet, here I sit just chugging along in XP/32. I nic-named it the "HAL 9000".
It runs Nero 8 beautifully!
Y'all have a great day now, Y'hear?
Hmmmmmmmmmmm! This thread dates back to April. . .Hmmmmmmmmmmmm!

If this discussion is still going - Version 9 - you can ignore the XML error - I don't think it effects the program in any way. I think Version 8 had problems running at all on the initial release of Windows 8 -- I'm using Windows 8.1 update 1 so I don't know if it's been fixed.
I agree though while alternative software suggestions are fine there are some situations where you are forced to use the software you are posting about so alternatives aren't the answer.
I still need XP to run some VINYL cutting applications -- fortunately I can run the XP in a Virtual machine - the Studio Vinyl application works fine. (There's a bigger market for Vinyl out there than some might think -- I even cut a few 78's (!!!) for some people who like to play around with some of the old wind up "gramophones" with the huge horn thing !!
You could try running your NERO and Studio app say in a Win 7 or even an XP Virtual machine -- depending on the hardware complexity it should work just fine --then you needn't worry about NERO not working in future when Windows is updated.
Well, Nero Burning Rom used to be almost only disk burning program that was worth something. Once I splurged for whole suite that had some great MM features. They started adding more and more stuff until it become bloated like a stranded whale, started to spy on users and became all but impossible to get rid of. Remember cleaning up files and registry for couple of days after I made my mind that I had enough of their antics. Since than, not even in zipped format I would not let it in my computer.
