CNET Editors' review

Nero 9 delivers a refurbished digital media suite that's still as comprehensive as they come, though now in a more polished wrapper. The installation file is massive and once Nero is on your machine, it consumes a hefty serving of memory. Considering all it can do, though, we can only complain so much.

CD- and DVD-burning are still Nero's core, while shortcuts for burning and ripping CDs and DVDs are now accessible from the new StartSmart GUI, now adorned with an RSS reader. Authoring and burning high-definition CDs and DVDs are added features, and so is the ability to export video files made and edited with Nero to YouTube, MySpace, and MyNero.

Nero 9 introduces RescueAgent, a tool to recover data from damaged disks, and a gaggle of Vista features, including a one-click desktop gadget for copying CDs.

Despite the cosmetic alterations, Vista support, and enhancements, particularly to Nero Vision, the dramatic changes are slim. However, Nero's significantly faster application launch time and improved usability make the audio, video, photo, data, and home entertainment workhorse that lets you edit MP3s, capture and edit video, record and playback TV, create slide shows, back up data, convert audio files, check your hardware specs, and design disc covers with ease well worth a try.

    "It is too complex make to work ;"

    April 9, 2010  |   By arizagil1962

    Version: Nero 9 - Reloaded 9.4.26

    Pros

    this particular version is too complex to use it

    Cons

    It takes too long to install it and at the end a lot of errors pop up

    Summary

    When you buy somthing not only you spend money but you wanted to enjoyed after that but then you find out it is a waste of money.
    PERSONALLY I AM NOT BUYING NERO ONE MORE TIME

    "Huge, balky and broke other apps. AVOID."

    April 6, 2010  |   By crossmod

    Version: Nero 9 - Reloaded 9.4.26

    Pros

    Lots-o-features, but all I needed as a disk copy and ISO burner, maybe some mp3's. It did copy the disks I needed though.

    Cons

    Slooow install (Quad Q9550???)

    Was unable to automatically find source and blank disk drive. Did not list the disk label which would helped

    Hosed the registry - killed one production app.

    Uninstall slow; System Restore needed.

    Summary

    Make sure you create a restore point in Windows before you install!! If you want basic functions, consider Nero Lite (no time limit). If you fill out their review after uninstall, they offer this. But when I reset registry, it removed the Nero Lite install file (oh well).

    I miss my Basic Roxio Easy CD Creator from Win2k. I will never download a limited trial this large again. In fact. the entire free download stuff is becoming useless, unless you time is worth nothing. Mine is not.

    "What a pain"

    April 3, 2010  |   By Dave Hingley

    Version: Nero 9 - Reloaded 9.4.26

    Pros

    its free, but having said that i only loaded it because i had a PC crash and lost my purchased version 5, and when i tried to put it back on using the disk it would only load 99% so after many attempts i gave in and tried the promo 9.

    Cons

    it has turned all my photo and film files into NERO and in consequence only the NERO program will play them, and so i am being held hostage to purchace the full version, but i wont because my computer now runs very slow and is allways freezing.

    Summary

    i wish i had not bothered with this download, and am sick of emails from NERO asking me to purchase the full version at a differant price what seems like every other day.

    "Can't copy legally purchased DVD"

    April 2, 2010  |   By thomasprewit

    Version: Nero 9 - Reloaded 9.4.26

    Pros

    None whatsoever.

    Cons

    Takes a VERY long time to install, and a long time even to uninstall it. Can not burn any copyrighted DVDs with it, so I see no point to it at all. I bought a DVD to watch on my computer, but can not play it, nor copy it to the hard drive.

    "Downloaded only recently. Need time to assess properly"

    March 29, 2010  |   By Chibuku

    Version: Nero 9 - Reloaded 9.4.26

    Pros

    Will be in a better position to comment in due course

    Cons

    I'm not sure exactly what purpose it serves, therefore won't pass comment

    Summary

    I think the above comments explains where I stand. I need to use the program more to be able to properly address this matter.

    "Downloaded Nero 9 for Windows 7and nothing but problems"

    March 25, 2010  |   By UPPUPUP

    Version: Nero 9 - Reloaded 9.4.26

    Pros

    Not to much.

    Cons

    Not compatible with dvd shrink, tried to burn a dvd and it stopped in the middle and the burner wouldn't open. I tried to contact tech support and it took them 2 days to answer my email and it said download update.

    Summary

    My new desk top computer came with a basic edition of Nero 9. I decide to upgrade for $49.99 so I could burn mp3s to audio CD and burn DVDs. Paid my money and got used.
    I wish i had done more research before buying. They also charge $1.29 a minute for tech support.

    "JUNK / WINDOWS 7 DOES NOT BURN CD DVD WITH ERRORS"

    March 22, 2010  |   By edmundmeyer

    Version: Nero 9 - Reloaded 9.4.26

    Pros

    NONE WHAT SO EVER!!!! BUYER BEWARE!!!! VERY PRETTY TO LOOK AT FOR SOFTWARE THAT DOES NOT PERFORM!!!

    Cons

    14 DAYS OF CUSTOMER SUPPORT. BEWARE THE LOWEST TECH SUPPORT AGENTS SEEM ANNOYED TO HELP. IF YOU WANT TO TALK WITH HIGHER TECH SUPPORT IT COSTS A $1.29 PER MIN AFTER THE 14 DAYS. FREE EMAIL SUPPORT HA! GOOD LUCK THEY ANSWER WHEN THEY ONLY WANT TO.

    Summary

    WHY BUY THIS FROM A COMPANY THAT OFFERS VERY LITTLE HELP WITH THEIR PRODUCT. I WOULD NEVER CONSIDER PAYING A $1.29 A MINUTE FOR SUCH EXPENSIVE SOFWARE!! DON'T BUY IT.

    THIS IS NOT JUST ME SAYING THESE THINGS, READ OTHER COMMENTS! WITHOUT GREAT TOTALY FREE LIVE TOP LEVEL TECH SUPPORT THIS PRODUCT IS JUST NOT WORTH ITS PRICE.

    "One giant step backwards for CD / DVD burner software"

    March 22, 2010  |   By LudditeLover

    Version: Nero 9 - Reloaded 9.4.26

    Pros

    It did NOT cause my PC to burst into flames. The GUI is in English. It has some pretty screens. That's all.

    Cons

    Bloated, causes PC to freeze for minutes, GUI is not user-friendly, confused by multiple versions of the same tool, options are hidden away, Nero support is useless. Makes using a PC a pain.

    Summary

    This is my first ever post. I am so angry having paid good money for this crock that I have to post a bad review (hopefully Nero will read this). Is this an example of what the future holds, ie. software actually becoming worse?!!

    Takes ages to install even from a disc.

    Everytime I start Nero my PC freezes for upto 5 minutes (go and do s/th else more useful!). Note: My PC is a dual core CPU only 1 year old.

    The GUI is stupid, eg the "Burn" button is available to click even though there is no data to burn. When you select files for adding you don't get any message to confirm it has done it (appears to freeze). I declined the Nero News option but the News pane still appears on the GUI (with a misleading "Next" button).

    There are 3 different ways of burning a CD. I only found the "Multisession" version by accident. If there is a Wizard that guides you to these versions I haven't found it!

    A step backwards: the burn speed is hidden away in an options section. Something as important as this should be included in the "ready to burn" section - which is how it used to be! And I am pretty sure if you change the default speed it reverts to the the default speed the next time you open the program (that sort of thing should be basic, good programming practice).

    Tried to download latest update but the web site connects you to the "Trial" software instead, thanks a lot, not.

    I dread to think how difficult it will be to compose and burn a DVD.

    "Completely Pathetic"

    March 21, 2010  |   By Redflava

    Version: Nero 9 - Reloaded 9.4.26

    Pros

    None so far

    Cons

    This garbage took over an hour to install! That is absolutely ridiculous!

    Summary

    I have never encountered a program that took so long to install! It is not only annoying but not worth the headache! I canceled the install process, and decided to look elsewhere! This software is horrible....stay away!

    "AWESOME Software for Video and Audio"

    March 15, 2010  |   By rbcmusicman

    Version: Nero 9 - Reloaded 9.4.26

    Pros

    I've been using this software for almost a year, and love the intuitive simplicity that it brings to the table. Making movies, slideshows, and audio CD compilations is a breeze. It comes with a good selection of templates and more are downloadable.

    Cons

    Manipulating the individual tracks of a CD can be confusing and difficult if you're not familiar with the process. I lost a little capability because I have a 64 bit operating system...a limitation they need to fix.

    Summary

    I liked it so much, I bought another license for my work computer, and may buy another one for my laptop. I've used just about every DVD/CD burning/ripping program out there, and this is the one I keep coming back to. The longer I have it, the more I discover about its capabilities.
