I regularly burn hundreds of CDs and DVDs. For me it is important to have the latest version of Nero 9, my favorite app for burning discs.
About a month ago I ordered the upgrade to version 9 and got it installed last week. As I was installing, I was amazed at the number of utilities were included and admittedly didn’t understand how they would be useful to me. I didn’t have any urgent projects on the agenda so it seemed like the right time to make the switch.
Funny how things come along that you don’t expect. I was working with an old disc the next day that had a few scratches on it. One of the many included utilities was Nero RescueAgent. I ran it and was able to recover all of the data from the scratched disc. Windows gave me nothing but errors when attempting to read the disc. That one utility alone made it worth the upgrade and that was before I had burned any discs.
Of course Nero allows you to make CDs, DVDs and even Blu-Ray discs (if you have a drive that supports them). It allows give you a number of tools for working with images, audio and video. It really is an amazing set of tools for the price. If you haven’t upgraded in a while or don’t have a full-featured toolkit, you might just find Nero 9 is something you need.
