The new version of Nero is now available for purchase and/or download.

http://www.nero.com/enu/nero8-introduction.html

Hard to believe but it is just as bloated. You would think Nero would have made some changes to the install process to give you more control over what is and is not installed. You still have no say on whether or not Nero Scout is installed; and by default it is enabled. The service for Nero Scout is also enabled (it can easily be disabled but that's not the point). It seems portions of Nero Home are also installed regardless if you choose to install it or not.

No clue what is new with the new version besides a new look SmartStart.

A 15-day trial is available.

So does this allow you to make an audio cd with MP3's and edit the tag information that is displayed on the vehicle information system do you think?

WMP11 is not doing jack for me even with all the information present :(

Cheers.

*opinion*

Ahead realized that there were many options in the freeware world that do what Nero did and that they had to add more to make it viable now. Now it's a complete suite of tools.

That being said, I still use version 6.

well, I'll continue my hijacking of this thread.. bman - did you visit the link that I included in my post to their site? They have a list of features spread around various portions of the site. Is there something in particular you're looking for Nero to do that other applications don't?

So I did an "upgrade" which took 3 reboots and over an hour to complete then found my finely tuned custom installation had just been replaced with everything.

And it still breaks Vista thumbnails.

Not exactly, it's just I have grown a custom to knowing what Nero can do in case I need something it can do.

I didn't check thumbnails (I forgot about that).

I had to reboot two times, but it kept my customized installation.

I hate just how bloated Nero has become, however I find myself using it simply for Nero Vision. I have never found anything that can replace that one piece of software.

I wont be upgrading to 8 however, if Ahead haven't even bothered to fix the thumbnail issue in Vista what exactly was the reasoning behind the new release?

Arg, I don't know what 2 do now. I now really want to change, since I have hated the bloat of Nero, but just feel like I will be missing something if I leave it.....

Look for Nero Lite or Micro, I have micro, it is just like v6 but is v7. None of the useless crap just the burning program. Works on Vista. You still need a valid license for it, but it is stripped down.

wait.. you complain about the bloat, but are afraid to leave it because Nero includes all this "extra" functionality.. what do you think is responsible for the bloat? ;)

I never thought I would say this, but; Roxio 10 makes nero 8 look and run like trailer trash ... I used to love nero, the bloatness of it drew me far away from it ..
