Free version of Nero 9 has no time limits and will allow basic CD and DVD authoring.
One of the things with Windows Vista that just never seemed to work right for me was the integrated CD and DVD burning capability. Every now and again, my computer simply refuses to burn a disk with Vista's integrated burning capability.
If you aren’t a fan of Vista's CD/DVD authoring tool, Nero has a new product that is right up your ally. Nero has announced that it is now offering Nero 9 as a free version
. The free version of the popular application allows users to burn data discs to CD or DVD and allows users to copy discs as well.
The functionality of the free version is basic, but for most users it will be all they need. There is no time limitation on the app, you can download it and keep it as long as you want. Users of the free version can also get a discounted upgrade to the full Nero 9 suite and free users can take advantage of a free 15-day trial of the full Nero 9 suite. Nero does require registration to get the free software, which means you may need to endure some marketing messages to use the app.
