our review below)
Nero 5.5 is an easy to use CD burning package, that's
packed full of features you'll really use. You can
create data CDs for archiving old files, backing up
your hard drive, or sharing files with friend or colleagues.
Nero also lets you burn audio CDs, creating your own
compilations from your record collection or music
files like MP3s. Special 'Burn-Proof' technology means
that Nero is more reliable and stable than any other
CD writing software, giving you great results in no
time at all. There's even a CD Cover package included,
to print out professional looking covers for your
creations. If you own a CD writer, you've probably
been frustrated with burning in the past. Find out
what your CD writer can do, and make it a joy to use.
Try Nero, you'll never look back.
Nero Burning ROM has long been heralded as the best
all-round CD writing software that is available. This
latest incremental release (Nero 5.5 Burning ROM CD
Writing Software) adds a gamut of minor enhancements
and some significant new features to ensure that it
stays ahead of the pack. Where Nero excels is in its
advanced feature set, tailored towards those who want
to maximise the use of their CD-RW drive.
Whether you are looking to overburn CD-Rs so as to
squeeze more data on, write to multiple drives simultaneously,
create bootable CDs, remove hiss from analogue recordings,
utilise Burnproof technology or you need UDF support
for packet writing CD-RWs, Nero has a powerful set
of tools to help you. It is also the ideal companion
for those working with multimedia files. A powerful
new audio editor enables you to make CDs the way you
want them to sound, with a cross fader for overlapping
tracks, and the ability to remove or modify pause
lengths between audio tracks. MP3 is well accommodated
for, with a Media Player and encoder, though the latter
is limited to encoding 30 tracks, before a separate
plug-in needs to be purchased. Video creation is also
a breeze with an enhanced MPEG1 encoder that supports
drag and drop of AVI files to convert to VCD/SVCD
For those with less experience of CD writing, who
are likely to be overwhelmed by the vast array of
features Nero has to offer, a Wizard system is available
to manage the less involved tasks. This makes burning
direct copies of CDs a simple matter of following
a walkthrough of options. While these wizards have
helped to make Nero more accessible, the manual could
still do with improving.
A CD labelling kit is supplied with the software,
along with a small supply of blank labels to get you
started. This is accompanied by improvements to the
cover editor, which lets you make your own designs
for your CDs and cases. Previous Nero users may not
find enough new features from version 5 to warrant
upgrading, but anyone using an earlier version, or
those new to CD writing, should certainly consider
getting hold of this excellent all-round package.

For ease of use and reliability, Nero 5.5 was a great
CD burning package. We used Nero 5.5 for around a
year and it served us faultlessly... Until we tested
it on a different make of computer with a CD/CDRW/DVD.
Despite our best efforts, we couldn't get the software
to recognise the new CD/DVD drive. We've also received
some negative user feedback and as a result have withdrawn
our recomendation of this product.
