Some of the new stuff:

Fast, easy, and convenient user interface

Consumers will also appreciate new file playback capabilities within Nero StartSmart for music, videos and photos, and ability to create playlists. Furthermore, Nero StartSmart now integrates Gracenote® music recognition service providing song and artist information for audio files.

Superior High Definition

New tape-scan feature allows quick and easy previews and scene selections from digital (DV) or high-definition videos (HDV) for the seamless import of video into creative projects, saving time and hard drive space.

Great new media and playlist handling will make users simply enjoy playback of their digital content.

No thanks... I tried out v7.x and v8.x hoping they would eventually get it working... Looks like they are going with giving the illusion that a new version number is going to be better... nah, it's just bloated and useless anymore... folks should save their money and donate a few bucks to Lightning UK for ImgBurn.

Roger that, I installed 7 & 8 after getting them on those double rebate, $0 AMIRs, from Fry's and went back to 6. I'll do the same with 9, eventually, if they have $0, AMIRs.

Just a quick heads up...

There is a bug in the installer for Nero 9. If you install Nero 9, you cannot install any other Nero products.

I didn't notice any improvement in 8 over 7.

Sure not interested in the BS "interface enhancements", "StartSmart" (which I never install), "Nero Home", or any of that garbage.

And "Nero Scout" is really a pain, in that you cannot choose not to install it.

Are there any real improvements in Nero Recode?

How about in Nero Digital audio encoding?

Sadly, I am so utterly not impressed or interested in this insanely enormous installation that takes an ungodly amount of time to install. I did install this monstrosity. It took forever and I ended up having issues playing back discs with PowerDVD so I wiped it off my system and my problem vanished. I guess I'll stick with Nero 8 when I'm not just using other products as a replacement. I've used Nero since before XP was released and this is a sad day for me. I had issues with Nero 8's bloat and other problems but was able to overlook them. Nero 9 has put the last nail in the coffin for me. :(

Wow, Ahead must really be concerned for their customers. Every version since 6 has had complaints about bugs and bloatware and they just ignore them and keep making it worse . What are they thinking ?

Wow, this is really too bad. I have my Black Friday traditional free-after-rebate copy of Nero 9 sitting in my cart at Fry's but it seems like no one has anything good to say about it..

That said I have both Nero 7 and Nero 8 that I have NEVER installed... not sure if I should get 9... or if they'll clean it up.
