Nero Burning ROMfor Windows



Burning made easy

Rip and burn your information to formats that suit you best. Nero Burning ROM is an easy way to do this.

Physical to digital and back

Save your old DVDs and CD albums and rip the content from them. Burn new discs when you need them.

Transfer your physical disks onto your computer and recreate an entire library filled with memories, shows, and your favorite artists without having to repurchase each file separately. You can also reverse this process.

Nero Burning ROM can rip the data from your disks, but it can also burn it onto new disks. It is a great way of backing up data as long as the computer you use can accept disks. All data processed through Nero can be encrypted and protected with advanced security features. This is a feature that makes it stand out in the crowd. However, the software is paid only and will require a purchase before you can use it.

You can edit the burned files at your own discretion. Remix them into playlists or edit to recap an entire season of Game of Thrones. It’s also a great way to have a digital scrapbook that you can give as a physical gift to a loved one on a special day.

You should keep in mind that the user interface is quite complicated. The program itself has a slight learning curve, but it is quick to master. It may just require a few attempts before you correctly burn or rip a file.

Where can you run this program?

Nero Burning ROM is available for Windows 7 and up.

Is there a better alternative?

No, but there are free alternatives like True Burner, InfraRecorder, and Ashampoo Burning Studio Free. These alternatives offer very similar features of burning or ripping disks at zero cost.

Our take

Nero Burning ROM is a handy software that helps you to modernize your DVD and album collection or add to it with digitally downloaded files.

Should you download it?

Yes. If you can afford it and plan to use it commercially. Otherwise, you should check out a free alternative such as InfraRecorder.
