I have not posted in a while, and while this may not be the best area to post this in, I must share my thoughts lately about NERO and what I have replaced it with.
For years now, I have steadily updated my dvd writers and along with it, I have kept updating NERO. Nero has now hit 1GB in size in its latest version 8. I have always found that no matter what I do, Nero will at times crash and that lately it is very difficult to get a version running properly with VISTA.
Anyways, I built a new rig, ( quadcore intel, with asus p5k premium motherboard, Pioneer 212D drive and Vista ) and was dutifully again going to install the latest Nero. I just want to do some simple burning, not turn my machine into a Multimedia I can do anything hub. After trying Nero and not being very happy, I started to look for alternatives.
I finally ran across a program called AShampoo Burning Studio 7. The program is 22MB in size and installs quickly with no problems into Vista and into my networked XP machine at work as well.
A simple program that burns cds and dvd's with no effort. I have not had a crash yet, do not have masssive bloatware running and love the ease and simplicity of the interface.
GoodBYE NERO !!!!!!!
( no I am not connected to Ashampoo in anyway, just want to ask if anyone else has similar missgivings about Nero as well )
