Editors' Review

+

Nero Burning ROM is an effective, easy-to-use, and still powerful software for burning CDs, DVDs, or Blu-rays.

Pros

Familiar interface: If you've used Nero before, the interface will feel familiar. This makes it easy to leap right back in.

Quick burning: In our tests, burns were completed quickly and without error.

Authoring features: Nero has a number of great features for whatever type of disk you're creating. You can specify an auto-run file on a CD-ROM, for example, or fill in all the metadata for an audio CD.

Cons

Push to buy: Nero continuously encourages you to buy the software.

Bottom Line

Nero Burning ROM 2015 is quick, effective, and powerful. However, the free trial only lasts a short period of time, and the program is very insistent that you buy the complete version during your trial.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Nero Burning ROM 2015 16.0.110099.

"Unreliable and buggy. Do not use for PMCDs"

April 08, 2014  |  By jordanreyne

 |  Version: Nero Burning ROM 2014 15.0.04600

Pros

The interface is simple to understand.

Cons

Not useful for time critical projects for the following reasons:
Installation problems when upgrading to the full version.
In my instance, the installer failed to recognise win 7 as the OS n a brand new system and had to eventually be installed on another.
Live tech support does not exist for this product and many of the installation issues are not covered in the FAQ.
Support contacts difficult to find.
Once installed on a non win 7 machine, the audio playback from a burn CD stuttered terribly despite the error checker reporting no isses.
Refusal to refund despite requesting one within 24 hours.

Summary

For any time critical projects, this software is worse than useless. Tomezone differences and lack of live support for this particular product mean that tech support is limited. My own experience was that the installer failed to recognise win 7 as the OS and terminated the installation, despite reboots, uninstalls and reinstalls. When I installed it on a vista machine, the CDs (burnt for pre-master use) passed the error check but would not play back on any device without stutters and crackles.
If you are looking for something to use for making pre masters, do not use this. I would reccomend wavelab, if you can afford it. Nero also refused to refund.

"BUYER BEWARE!!!"

February 08, 2014  |  By mediamom1

 |  Version: Nero Burning ROM 2014 15.0.03900

Pros

Can't think of any!

Cons

The only formats this program will burn to DVD are VOB, IFO, or BUP

Summary

I spent $71 on this program: $50 for the program, plus extended download and a backup CD. I wanted to burn videos onto DVDs. The first thing I found was that there doesn't seem to be a way to insert a title screen. Perhaps there is, but it would take a search warrant to find it. I searched all through the so-called help file - nothing! I noticed that the program would not allow me to put the 3 videos I wanted to burn onto the same DVD in the order I wanted them. It kept arranging them in alpha order. After a couple of days trying to figure out how to use this program I contacted support and was instructed to send a screenshot which I did. The message I received from support said that I could not burn .avi videos onto a DVD only VOB, IFO, or BUP format. Seriously? So, to burn a DVD using this program you apparently have to convert videos to these formats. That's a bit of information that I, in looking at the information for this program again on Nero's website, do not see included in any of the specs. So, buyer beware!

"False Advertising. Misleading. Unhelpful."

October 27, 2013  |  By bulwark12

 |  Version: Nero Burning ROM 2014 15.0.02700

Pros

A nice ad that promises a lot (but doesn't deliver).

Cons

Isn't usable with any common media formats.

Summary

I downloaded the product for $50 that promised to be very helpful but immediately told me that I would need to upgrade to another Nero product to be able to burn in a usable media format. I reported this and was told that I couldn't get a refund but that I would have to follow a long list of steps to get them information before they could start 'helping' me. Ridiculous.

"POOR SUPPORT ONLY CONCERNED WITH MAKING MONEY"

October 24, 2013  |  By onefisheromen

 |  Version: Nero Burning ROM 2014 15.0.02700

Pros

Works only on Windows

Cons

NO Mac support, now or even in the future because they said it is not going to be inductive of making money.

Summary

I bought this and used it for years. My windows computer broke down and I replaced it with a MAC and won't use windows programs on it for security purposes. I realize there are parallel programs but won't do that... anyway... I purchased the new Nero to use on the new computer, the Mac and seconds after hitting the PAY button I see the system requirements don't include Mac. I immediately contacted the 'Support Team' to ask for a refund. I realize it was MY mistake but come on, have a little compassion and give back what is not yours!

their "Support Team" keep giving me the run around telling me in technical language that it is 'too bad' in so many words. They will not give me a refund even though I called and wrote to them just seconds after making the mistake.

They are COLD and UNCARING that this mistake was made.

All I want is my 64.99 back. My family works hard for our money to just 'give' it away to some company that cares nothing for us.

"Great app, but you are limited to Nero's nrg file type."

September 02, 2013

 |  Version: Nero Burning ROM 12 12.0.02801

Pros

Powerful software; easy to use for advanced users

Cons

Software limits functionality to Nero's proprietary file format for creating images. This limits the use of the software to in-program use only, unless third-party adware- and spyware-laden tools are downloaded to mount the image so you can re-burn.

Summary

If you anticipate Nero handling 100% of your needs then it will be adequate.
If you have even the slightest doubt that you may need to use anything you create outside of Nero, then go find a software program that uses a non-proprietary file format.

Brilliant marketing, Nero.
