Windows 10: Pardon my NERO Rant

    Hi there
    Honestly NERO used to be a great product -- now it's FULL of bloatware -- the last decent version was release 9 IMO -- I don't need or want all that video / audio editing / stuff etc etc. Release 9 works and you can totally ignore the error.

    I think you can ignore the error also in version 2014 -- but as others have said think what you actually NEED Nero for --- there are a load of free alternatives out there if you merely want to BURN / RIP CD's / DVD's. Think also that the DVD itself is a dying medium -- a lot of machines these days don't have them built in any more -- I only have an external DVD drive for archiving old DVD's to HDD and on the VER VERY rare occasion when I get a DVD movie / blu ray movie I always rip to HDD via a mechanism like AnyDVD.

    Remember also that Windows 8 has native Virtual ISO mounting so if you copy the ISO to HDD you also don't need the physical DVD drive any more.

    Cheers

    As I have previously noted, there are specific functions/options that Nero BurningROM provides that other burning software, including some paid and free software does not. I am setup for BurningROM, All my current and archived CD projects are formatted for BurningROM and it would be a huge task to migrate them to some other product (that had all the features). With a "commercial" production facility I don't have a problem paying for what I need.

    I appreciate all the references to other software but that is not the point.

    My bitch was the install problem that NERO should have owned up to.

    Heheheh! You too?

    I started using Ashampoo with version 5 (I think) years ago when I finally got peed with my Nero version not working on the Vista release candidate. Never bothered to go bac to Nero, just upgrade the Ashampoo one every so often.

    Never had any problems with it, and the later versions are pretty feature-packed without being bloated. Often, there is a 'free' version as well, usually a cut-down earlier 'paid' one, which will suit almost every casual burning/ripping/iso creation requirements.

    And as an added bonus, if you register with them, you get the occasional decent free program and good discounts on their new ones.

    This isn't an ad, either, paid or otherwise. It's just a good program which I'm happy to recommend...

    As I've previously posted, several times, other programs that I've tried including Ashampoo, do not have all the features I require and are in Nero BurningRom. The other programs have some but not all the available functions that are in Nero. Even the High $$ Sony CD Architect that is used by many recording studios does not have all the needed features.

    Yes, we do get your point, and it appears that some of us have had problems of various kinds with Nero, and have some empathy with you. And we do get that other software may not do what you personally need.

    Someone may enter the thread with just the info you need, maybe not.

    But in the meantime, we are only offering suggestions in an effort to help, not to try to 'convert' you, or make light of your issues.

    BTW, I agree wholeheartedly with your comment re 'vendor finger-pointing'. It's frustrating in the extreme, when all you want is to get your issue resolved.

    Well, I appreciate the efforts but it does no good for someone to post and promote their favorite burning application. It was not the point of the post. The point of the post was my frustration with an installation problem that the vendor (Nero) would not, or could not, fix; and with its your OS problem or whatever and not mine.

    I worked 23 years as a LAN/WAN Network and Hardware Help Desk Manager in a multi-vendor environment. I had enough of the vendor finger pointing with that.

    I bought my first copy of NERO when it was still an infant.
    I then upgraded time after time till I got to Nero 9, which I absolutely Hated. I then went back to using Nero 8 and that's the same version I use today, on every OS up to and including 8.1. Works Great for everything I need it to do.

    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?
