This program has been reported to be unavailable on a regular basis.
This implies that we are unable to provide universally applicable download links, relevant version information.
This is the newest version of the most known CD and DVD burning software, but now with the capability to burn HD DVDs, and Blu-ray Discs. The Essential or OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) versions are normally provided to customers with bundled hardware like recorders or pc systems.
Nero Essentials/OEM are versions of Nero that do not contain all the features of the retail version.
The list of software is quite large or quite small, it all depends according the hardware manufacturer but may roughly include: Nero Mobile, Nero Home 3, Nero Scout, Nero StartSmart 8, Nero Burning ROM 8, Nero Express 8,Nero WaveEditor 4, Nero SoundTrax 3, Nero Vision 5, Nero Recode 3, Nero ShowTime 4, Nero MediaHome 3, Nero ControlCenter, Nero PhotoSnap, Nero CoverDesigner 3, Nero BackItUp 3, Nero ImageDrive 3, Nero DiscSpeed 4, Nero DriveSpeed 3, Nero RescueAgent, Nero BurnRights, Nero InfoTool 5, InCD 5, SecurDisc Viewer, InCD Reader 5, Nero DiscCopy, Nero Burn/Burn Settings Plug-In for Windows® XP Media Center Edition Manual, Nero MediaStreaming for Windows® XP Media Center Edition, Nero Digital™ Plug-in for Adobe® Premiere®.
There not much I can tell besides Nero was my first recording software and I’m still using it because there’s no match for it. I recommend it highly, other recording software manufacturers will have to improve a lot to be near Nero!


  • Very complete gamut of characteristics. Excellent recording quality.


  • As the specifications vary according to the manufacturer, so does the software and characteristics included.
