I’ve been using Nero for years, but think with Nero 8, it has finally moved to far from it’s Burning Rom to make it worthwhile. The killer for me is that both versions 7 and 8 are bloated and complete resource hogs, even after choosing only to install Burning ROM. This has a lot to do with Nero Scout, and with version 8, it seems there is no way to completely disable or remove this piece of Nero (or never install it to begin with).
So, I’m looking for a Nero Burning ROM alternative. Something that is light on system resources, and has most (if not all) of the core CD/DVD burning features of Nero. I mostly burn data, DVD movies, and audio CD’s. Lightscribe support would be nice too, but is not required. I tried Roxio years ago, but thought it was too bloated then.
I’m also curious what most of the experts here are using? Nero 7 or 8? Nero 6? Roxio? Or something else? If I can’t find anything better, I may go back to Nero 6 (but am a little worried about compatibility with modern drives and media - is this something to be concerned over?)
Thanks for your assistance!
