Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

Nero Burning ROM has long been heralded as the best all-round CD writing software that is available. This latest incremental release (Nero 5.5 Burning Rom CD Writing Software) adds a gamut of minor enhancements and some significant new features to ensure that it stays ahead of the pack. Where Nero excels is in its advanced feature set, tailored towards those who want to maximise the use of their CD-RW drive. Whether you are looking to overburn CD-Rs so as to squeeze more data on, write to multiple drives simultaneously, create bootable CDs, remove hiss from analogue recordings, utilise Burnproof technology or you need UDF support for packet writing CD-RWs, Nero has a powerful set of tools to help you. It is also the ideal companion for those working with multimedia files. A powerful new audio editor enables you to make CDs the way you want them to sound, with a cross fader for overlapping tracks, and the ability to remove or modify pause lengths between audio tracks. MP3 is well accommodated for, with a Media Player and encoder, though the latter is limited to encoding 30 tracks, before a separate plug-in needs to be purchased. Video creation is also a breeze with an enhanced MPEG1 encoder that supports drag and drop of AVI files to convert to VCD/SVCD format discs. For those with less experience of CD writing, who are likely to be overwhelmed by the vast array of features Nero has to offer, a Wizard system is available to manage the less involved tasks. This makes burning direct copies of CDs a simple matter of following a walkthrough of options. While these wizards have helped to make Nero more accessible, the manual could still do with improving. A CD labelling kit is supplied with the software, along with a small supply of blank labels to get you started. This is accompanied by improvements to the cover editor, which lets you make your own designs for your CDs and cases. Previous Nero users may not find enough new features from version 5 to warrant upgrading, but anyone using an earlier version, or those new to CD writing, should certainly consider getting hold of this excellent all-round package. --J. Weston

Product Description

Nero Burning offers a complete audio editing and CD-burning solution, and even lets you design and print cover art for your new CDs. It all starts with the Nero Wave Editor, with non-destructive editing thatlets you try many options and undo all changes. A range of audio-processing options gives you complete control over your audio files before you record them to disc. A real-time "audition" lets you select and hear effects in real time, as your soundfile plays. Preset Manager lets you save your frequently-used settings. There are also features for sample format conversion, anti-aliasing filters, dithering, and noise shaping.

You can design your own CD graphics quickly and easily with Nero's updated Cover Designer. The Designer helps you produce professional-looking layouts for your CD booklets and inserts. The Cover Designer includes assorted graphic effects, customizable design templates, multi/maxi album support, and predefined paper stocks. The Nero MPEG1 Video Encoder allows you to make VCD and SVCD discs from MPEG files, and convert AVI video to MPEG via a drag-and-drop interface. Your disc will then ready to be burned as a Video CD, playable on your PC or in compatible DVD players.

You can also add onscreen menus to your Video and Super Video CDs. These menus are like "cover pages" for your discs, making it easy to select tracks for playback. And Nero 5.5's Audio Plug-in Interface makes it easy to create your own custom-written support files (DLLs) for the new formats of your choice. (Programming knowledge and extra third party tools required.) If you're a programmer or software developer, you can now use Nero 5.5's Embedded API to add our powerful CD-writing functions to your own applications.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very, very easy to use, and user friendly 17 Dec 2002
Verified Purchase
I got this so I was able to record MP3 CD's to play on my car stereo, as I can fit a lot more songs on this way, (150+ compared to maximum 20) For this it is wonderful. However, it also has many other benefits. It is very user friendly. It is colourful, and clear, and very simple to use. It has step by step guidelines. All the formats are there to choose from. Along with audio and data CD's, pictures and many other formats can be recorded from this. Also with this package comes vision express, so you can create pictures to go on CD's to make them look professional.
When you open the Nero Express, you get the choice of which format you would like to burn. Data, music, videos or pictures, entire disc, and disc image or saved files.
This is definately worth buying.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nero a Good Buy 15 Nov 2002
Bought a CD rewriter this week and installed Nero 5.5. I have little computer experience and found this package worked extremely well. It is uncomplicated. I was able with only one minute instruction from an IT person 2 days previously to 'burn' 30 digital photos to a CD R mini disc in less than 2 minutes. I checked it on another PC and accessed the photos from the disc perfectly. I have other features to learn about but if you can produce the CD-R in such short time what more can I say. I Recommend this product wholeheartedly to readers.

5.0 out of 5 stars All you need is Nero 30 July 2003
Verified Purchase
I bought this bit of kit on the recomendation of a friend, and I wasn't dissapointed. I had several programmes for converting files, printing labels and burning cds. I have uninstalled all of them as Nero does all these jobs and more. The help files are good, and the wizzard helps novices to compile and burn their favorate tracks or data.
I would recomend this to anyone, from novices to experienced users, its so easy to use. My 12 year old son is hogging it at the moment, I cant wait for school to start so that I can get a go..

5.0 out of 5 stars At last, something competent... 23 July 2003
Other users of this software have indicated their appreciation, now I'm going to! Before I bought this software, I tried the trial version just to see if it was what I had in mind...verdict: great ! After the trial expired ,(it lasts about a month), I decided to buy the full version. My main use for it is to compile SVCD's for playing on DVD players, it copes with this job admirably, but that ain't all it does...version 5.5 also captures video (if you want it to), and of course it does the usual audio operations including Mp3, (via plug in, bought separately), cross fades can be added, music captured from tape etc etc. Best of all it hasn't yet ruined a disc from buffer underrun, either in the trial version or the full one. The supplied hard copy manual is reasonably useless, gives a bit of quick start info, that's all really, the full manual is on the cd. Packed along with the software you also get a few cd labels and a 'sticker on-er' of cd labels ( to keep 'em central). It's very much worth the money, but remove all your old cd burner software before you install, just to stop any potential conflicts. If the trial version is still available I recommend you try that first, it's free and about 11Mb to download, you don't get any help files with it though, then when you find out that you are impressed, buy the full version..especially at Amazon price coupled with Amazons rather excellent delivery service.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good for the audio enthusiast 5 Mar 2003
I rate this software as both a standard data writing package and a audio CD creation program.
For 'standard' back up of data and CD's it is unrivalled, always working correctly and not ruining numbers of blank media.
From an audio point of view it is very easy to extract or strip data from an audio CD digitally (all internal to the PC), create a track listing and then burn it to CD with break points between each track.
The only reason you would need to look at higher end packages (like Cakewalk Pyro for instance) is if you need to be able to deal with .mp3 files, edit tracks or create custom fade ins and outs. Highly recommended.
