Lost disk--can download Nero Express somewhere?

Postby ironword on Tue Apr 12, 2005 1:33 pm

Greetins' tuh ahl.

Got a li'l problem. Almost two years ago, mainly because of a review on this site ( http://www.cdrlabs.com/reviews/index.php?reviewid=194 ), I bought a Lite-on LTR-52327S. Unfortunately, I moved a few months ago and, as will happen during moves, the disk with Nero Express got lost, probably thrown away because it got accidentally mixed in with some nameless pile of junk. (I HATE moving.)

This was no big deal for a while, but now I've had a new system built, into which I of course transferred my now-beloved Lite-on, and I need to re-install Nero Express. (I don't need the full version of Nero. The light version was fulfilling all my needs just fine.)

I emailed Lite-on about this and got back an email from someone who doesn't speak English very well. I had clearly explained that my installation disk was lost and I needed to get Nero Express again, and could I download it from somwhere; the linguistically challenged "tech support" person who replied told me to "get it from the disc that bundled with this drive," then proceeded to say, "we could do not offer additional burning software because of license issue. Please buy the original version or download from their vendor's web site." (Too many instances of "sic" to actually put in the quotation.)

So there's no help from Lite-on. Does anyone else know where to get a copy of Nero Express?

Alternatively, is there a reliable freeware burning app available? I've tried a couple and wasn't impressed. (I use EAC to rip, so ripping software isn't necessary--just burning. )

Download Nero Express

This is a commercial application, you can either buy it in a store or download it from www.nero.com, but either way you have to pay for a licence...

you can download the Nero program file from www.nero.com

without buying a retial version or a serial number online it will be just a demo. however if you still have your older system, in which the Lite-On drive and Nero were installed, you can find the serial number in the registry (explanation for how to do this can be found in Nero's website)
go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE and under SOFTWARE_AHEAD_NERO-BURNING ROM_INFO obtain your Nero 5 or Nero 6 serial number from here.
and use it to 'activate' the downloaded program file.
