    Good stuff.
    It doesn't include Windoze 7 on the compatibility list, so it's enf-of-range, really.
    But it's free!!!

    i saw this offer on another site and people were saying that it was only for burning data and not video or music,
    if true then it has limited use.

    I personally wouldn't touch Nero with a barge pole, I use Ashampoo Burning Studio and does everything I've asked of it and is extremely reliable and no bloat unlike Nero! Download.com link

    If anyone here is actually thinking of installing that, I suggest they read this first. Besides being bloated and potentially annoying this particular utility isn't really necessary, since Windows XP has had basic disc authoring capabilities from day one, and with just one update can potentially do even more. Disc image manipulation and label creation still require the use of third-party utilities, but having the capacity to burn data or audio to CD, DVD and BD is enough for most people's needs.

    Naturally, Windows 7 can do most of this stuff straight out of the box. :rolleyes:

    Starburn
    I use Starburn which has nearly all of the features that the larger versions of Nero comes with yet doesn't cost a penny. However, be careful when installing Starburn and uncheck all of the optional extra's or you end up with firefox addons and a new homepage.

    Starburn: http://www.rocketdivision.com/download_starburn.html

    Been using Starburn for a while now and I think it's brilliant.

    I'm using Ubuntu linux as operating system, which as every major Linux distro comes loaded with opensource software including full version of burning software like K3B or Brasero. Free and unlike what others like us to believe user friendly and supported.

    Free Nero 9 Official CD DVD Bruning Software for download
    Free Nero 9 Download - subject to registration for some unknown limited period direct from Nero - Credit Crunch Cheers!

    Just downloaded myself so don't know much info - please kindly discuss here if any issues.

    Enjoy!

    PS software is quoted as "free forever"!
  • archived user
    Have you got a URL? Can't seem to find anything at Nero.com

    Edit:

    Found it. The free forever is a severely limited version that gives basic burning capability
