View Full Version : ??? Nero 8 essentials

26-11-2012, 06:02 PM
I have had to change my DVD drive.
The new one came with "Nero 8 Essentials" which I
I wanted to make an audio cd, not mp3.
When I drag and drop the music files still
seem to remain in MP3 format. Older versions that I used
would convert to std CD format.
Can anyone help with where I am going wrong.
Like Price Spy, the newer versions are not always an improvement.

I would use something like cdburnerxp. Its smaller and will probably do a better job. If you install it, do a custom install

Hi Speedy,
Thanks for your prompt reply.
I D/L cdburner ,did a trial run, no problems.

Sweet I got Nero Essentials 10 the other day with this burner. Dont think I'll use it . Most of Nero's software is way too bloated. There's smaller and less bloated software around. And some of its free!

Yeah Speedy is right, Nero has become pretty big and bloated since version 7. CDBurnerXP is the best, although the name having "XP" in it can be a little deceiving, it works fine with Vista / 7 / Windows 8.
