Thanks

Nice one... you cant get a hotter deal than something good for free!

thansk

It would seem that you can only burn data discs, therefore no music ripping.

Great post, heat added

not impressed,only data burning,certainly not for cd/dvd burning unless you want to pay

yep only basic if it was full then this would be worth heat.

COLD!!!!

What planet do you live on - yes it's limited but it's also free. For those who need only limited functionality it's a hot deal.

What 'ShallowDog' meant to say was it doesn't meet my needs so I won't vote.

Hot post - H&R added - thanks.

'ImgBurn', 'Infra Recorder' and 'CDBurnerXP' are all free, fully featured and make this gimmick offering by Nero look distinctly amateur.

I would recommend any (or all given the down payment!) of the above referenced software over Nero.

have just downloaded infra recorder and this is brillant far more on it than what you were getting on nero 9,and best of all its all free

No its because IMGBurn and CDBurnerXP perform the job much better for a fraction of the size.

Look out for the ask.com toolbar option.Also most people have reported this as rather pointless.
Go for the free alternatives or try out Cyberlink Power2Go. I was a big fan of Nero until it went downhill. C P2Go is a very good tool.

I use deep burner free - has a portable version which runs off a memory stick. Also for MP3 ripping try disc2phone - BIG THANKS to sony for that!!!

Ashampoo burning suite 6 is another free brilliant programme. I wouldn't use nero now...........it used to be good but not now.


renagade27

used to be a fan of nero thanks for the heads up guys all above.

still how can a freebie be cold - still a bargain for anybody wanting a piece of software for writing cd's!!!

if the others are better (am going to try them soon as i get my desktop set back up) somebody should feel free to post one of the other pieces of software with a link. will probably get hotter than this!

Agreed. Nero has also made their commercial product so full of needless resource hogging useless 'features' and 'improvements' that it's very, very unpopular. They seem to have lost sight of what people actually want.

I still use Nero 7, before it got too heavy with all the extra options that are not really necessary.

Echoing other people. This is not hot at all. It's just shareware. The full programme with very limited features that you can keep using while being reminded/advertised to upgrade the whole time.

Free it may be, but it's like getting a girlfriend that will only let you hold her hand before marriage. Is that hot?

Have some rep for making me laugh!

Surprised this is as hot as it is, I think people just see Nero 9 and vote without reading.

Use IMGBurn if you are wanting free software, never fails and no adverts all the time.

Personally, I don't find all freebies worthwhile. In the case of free Nero 9, I can't see how anyone would find it useful. There are links for other free alternatives in previous posts.
I understand your point about making threads for other apps but this opens up a whole new category: I could post all the top picks in Lifehacker's HIve Five, or those from Gizmo Freeware, but certain things are best left for other forums or for a Google search.

Cold - there are better free alternatives.

Banned

Cold, there are better, Personally I like CDburnerXP.

In the glorious spirit of illogic, I'm gonna vote this hot for all the excellent reasons so many call it cold.

Without this thread and the heat it was given, I would never have heard about IMGBurn and CDBurnerXP etc. I now know to use them, not Naffo9.

For the same reason, all the helpful experts who voted it cold should reverse their vote to promote it.

HUKD. It's an education.:thumbsup:

Thanks H&R added..

The free version of Starburn doesn't. However, the free version of ] Ashampoo Burning Studio does.

Wish I'd seen this info before I uninstalled bloated Nero 8 and put the free Nero 9 on. I was annoyed to see there isn't even a facility for burning audio discs!

I will try CDBurner XP - I really like the look of its simple interface.

I use CDBurnerXP on my Vista 64 bit machine and it does everything that this Nero does, plus burn DVD movies, music CDs, in fact, anything you want. And it's free.

Suddenly this limited (hobbled) Nero doesn't seem such a good deal.

Cold.

anything free is a bonus for me !! ;-)
