Version 7 is out and some people have said it is now bloated but this is not the case as it is just the install is different. All previous versions had separate installers (packages) and seven has just one installer with all applications contained in it.

When the installer gets to the screen that lets you choose between typical and custom you want to choose custom. This will allow you to choose what you want to install and also what file extensions you do or do not want Nero applications to be associated with.

When I say bloated, I am referring to the fact that you have to download things that you will never use as well. I want it to be the way it was before. I don't want to have to download a 100 meg file when I am going to use 10 meg of it ..

yes..... you may be downloading more than you want..... but all in all i think it's a much better put together application now. don't know how i came to that conclusion..... it just seems to be a tad easier to navigate i think.

I do not like the new Nero (also a 5.5 fan) and after years of exclusive Nero burning I am ready to jump ship. What are your guys' favorite alternative burning apps and why?

I think the new version of Nero is great. For those of you who say it is bloated maybe you have forgotten that you can choose what you want to install (except for Nero Scout but as OSNN's very own American Zombie has proven it can be disabled and removed using a registry edit).

If all you want is Burning ROM then that's all you have to install.

Nero 7 is like chicken noodle soup, m'm m'm good.

burnatonce for data cd/cd, burrrn for audio cd.

Both are extremely lighweight and designed to do only one or two things and they do it very well. Also, the authors are very responsive to feedback and quick to implement bug fixes (the few times they're necessary).

www.burnatonce.com
www.burrrn.net


edit:

I just wanted to clarify that it's not that burnatonce is inferior for audio cd; it is fine. I use burrn for audio primarily because of replaygain support.

Madmatt: you don't even really have to use the disabler AZ provided. you can disable Nero Scout right from the Nero Scout window when it first shows up.

Dragon, yes, you disable it either through the installer or in options. However, it still appears in Explorer. His registry edit removes it from Explorer (and therefore save dialogs and such).

Nero 7.0.1.4 was released today. However, it is once again a full version release (Demo). But, it works as an upgrade for previous versions (just tagged "Demo").

The update (without Yahoo! Toolbar) is 100MB.

No change log available.

I received this email from Nero Tech Support after asking when they were going to start issuing updates in a similar fashion as they did for 6.*

Dear Valued Customer,

thank you for your email.

The automatic update function over
- Nero StartSmart
- Nero Toolkit
- Nero ProductSetup
- Update your Nero Products
is not available yet unfortunately.

The next Nero 7 update is offered at the beginning of December from our website www.nero.com. It will have to be downloaded and installed manually.

All Nero 7 updates as of January 2006 can then be downloaded and installed directly over Nero.

Nero Scout - Some people (like me) do not want Nero Scout on their system and if you are one of them you can use this file to remove it. The zip also includes a restore file for Nero Scout should you desire to put it back in.
Cool Util AZ. +rep for you :D

Nero 7 isn't bad - but I do think some of the stuff you don't need to use
