Nero 9 Lite claims to be a full-service CD burning program. While it looks like a great tool for burning data and music disks, its trial limits kept us from truly finding out what it can do.
The program's interface features a professionally designed layout that flows well from one command to the next. It felt so natural that we weren't upset that Nero doesn't offer any sort of Help file or instructions. Unfortunately, we didn't get to fully experience this program much beyond admiring its layout. While it boasts many tools for burning and ripping music, backing up data, building photo slideshows and more, they're mostly disabled during the software's trial period. However, we were able to create and burn a data disk. This was a smooth, two-step process that went quickly and produced an accurate copy of our data on a recordable CD. We can only hope the rest of the program operates just as effortlessly. Nero 9 Lite seems a bit slim in the special features department--those are most disabled, too--though its option to adjust burning speed seems like a helpful way to keep your computer from slowing down or freezing up. While Nero 9 Lite looked like a home run, we can't really draw much of a conclusion due to its trial limitations.
Nero 9 Lite has the aforementioned trial limits. It installs desktop icons without permission. While the program looked great, we couldn't fully test it and thus can't recommend it.
