Second Best

Recommended Posts

I know that ImgBurn is the best burner.

 

I am wondering what would be the second best burner for those job that ImgBurn cannot do eg multisession, audio, boot CD, etc. Or jobs that I cannot figure out on ImgBurn.

 

I have available to me a full version of Nero 6.6. This is the older vision before the bloat. I think it is about a 30-40 mb installation. I have noticed that many people mention using Nero until new features are availble for ImgBurn. Is Nero considered the second best in the industry? or is there another app that is better. I am running W2K and only have a CD Burner so only burn CDs.

 

Thoughts and advise will be appreciated

Well, I only have Nero installed because I use the Cover Designer with my new lightscribe drive (LG GSA H55L).

 

For burning audio cds, you could use Burrrn. You could also use Exact Audio Copy.

 

I don't use multi-session discs myself, but nero is a good (current) choice for that.

 

ImgBurn can read and burn bootable cds. In build mode, click the Advanced tab, then Bootable Disc. :thumbup:

 

btw, my version of nero is 6.6.0.16.

Thanks for the link to the Nero 6 latest version. Do I need Nero on the computer first and then update with this version, or can i just clean install this version and put in my registration number?

It supports both upgrading an existing version and also clean install with a serial number :thumbup:

6.6.0.18 was the latest version before they started that damn ultracache

Is the ultracache a problem?

 

Is v. 6.6.0.18 a better version? more stable and effective and without bloat? Which version is preferred:

afaik it's a good way to make a coaster if you multitask right at the beginning of a burn

 

nero grabs a 200 megs of ram just in case you need it and then releases excess later

 

at an 8x dvd burn you are only writting at 11 MB/s

 

there are a few nero geeks left over at cdfreaks

I don't miss Nero in the slightest.

 

 

Do you use any other burning software aside from ImgBurn, eg for multisession work?

I don't do multisession discs, so no need for any other app for burning other than Imgburn.

So, is it better to use Nero 6.6.0.18, rather than the 6.6.1.15, in order to avoid this issue?

depends on your drive as support for your model may have been added with later version of nero

 

 

I have tried both of these versions and they both work on my drive.

 

Should I avoid the one that has the heavy memory cache?

Thats up to you and how much memory you have in your system and if you like to faff on whilst burning or you just burn and go

I've never had a problem txing files across a network and burning using ultracache enabled version of nero but advisable to just leave comp alone whilst burning no matter which writing software your using.

Personally I like to do some CPU intensive video conversion whilst burning....oh the suspense and anticipation you get is overwhelming!

I burned my backup disc while running spybot. Still burned and verified correctly :). (With ImgBurn of course!)

the only other burning app i use is EAC and thats for audio cds...the only bad thing about it...is that it doesnt support non normal characters in the cue sheet...so i gotta edit it before i can burn the audio cd
