    Okay, Nero continues to stop working after about a week and I have to keep reinstalling it and I'm getting tired of doing that. It's worked fine for years and now it decides it hates me.

    I just need a simple program that lets me burn files onto a CD or DVD and then name the disc. Any ideas?

    *The windows default program, it´s slow but works fine.
    *A older version of Nero.

    Funny you say that cause just recently my nero's been acting weird too.

    My problems a bit different from yours though cause I can use nero for everything but burning to dual layered dvds

    It fails everytime no matter what speed i burn at, which is a pain in the arse.

    I'd have to say that alcohol 120% would be my next pick, maybe you should give that a try.

    lagman: Windows has a built in burn program?

    Burt0: I have Alcohol 120% as well but I thought it only let you burn image files and not put individual files on a disc.

    I use NERO, CDR-Win, Alcohol120% and IMGburn. You could also check for example download[dot]com and sarch for burners.

    Sure it does, and it´s actually pretty good and simple.
    Just drag´n´drop the files to your unit (D)

    I'd say ImgBurn. Haven't used it for long, but it does what I use Nero for: burn files and images [​IMG] And it does it good of course.

    Imgburn for iso burning and basic disc making (folder2iso is nice sometimes as well).
    http://www.free-codecs.com/download/ImgBurn.htm
    http://www.afterdawn.com/software/video_so.../folder2iso.cfm

    Burrrn for making audio cds
    http://www.burrrn.net/?page_id=6

    Exact audio copy for ripping audio cds and mp3tag for audio sortout
    http://www.exactaudiocopy.de/
    Tag: http://www.mp3tag.de/en/

    DVD decrypter and ripit4me for DVD ripping.
    http://www.doom9.org/

    DVD shrink or maybe DVD rebuilder as a old style nero recode replacement (if you need one for MP4 I suggest spending 20 minutes learning video and using megui).
    Shrink: http://www.doom9.org/
    Rebuilder: http://dvd-rb.dvd2go.org/

    Daemon tools as the virtual drive (careful not to select install adware).
    http://www.free-codecs.com/download/Daemon_Tools.htm
    DVDs I can make myself but DVDflick does the job of DVD making.
    http://www.dvdflick.net/
    Audacity probably serves as a decent audio editor (this is about the only thing nero has sown up in my opinion):
    http://audacity.sourceforge.net/

    Oh and if you for some reason like nero showtime the usual CCCP suggestion stands with real/quicktime alternative should you need it:
    http://www.cccp-project.net/

    That is just about everything (and probably more) that nero does and it is all free, the GUIs may not be as pleasing to look at but I dare say the apps behind it are better. Save megui they are all .net free as well.

    IMG Burn is where it's at. It's free and works well for images and straight files.
