    Default Who can recommend a burner for windows8?

    Hi everyone,

    I have been using Nero but after i update my system to windows8 Nero cannot be use. When i click the icon nothing happens, so i think the Nero may not compatible with the windows8. Do you know some friendly-use burner for windows8? I hope you can recommend some for me.

    Thank you in advance.

    Nero 8 works just fine.
    What icon are you clicking on?
    I never let the installer put a Nero icon on my desktop, because it always puts that totally LAME, Nero Express icon on there. I say NO to all icons on the desktop or task bar.
    I go into Program Files/Nero and find the .exe for Nero Burning Rom and "send to desktop and create a shortcut".

    Do all this from your "Desktop" and not the Metro screen.

    I've already tested Nero 8 on Win-8/CP and it works Great.

    Good Luck,

    Cool Re: Who can recommend a burner for windows8?

    Update:

    To further answer your question, and mine, I just now installed "ImgBurn" (Image Burn) to my Win-8/64 and there were no problems with the install. It's a free program and works great to burn ISO's to DVD's or to make an ISO file off of a DVD.

    For creating data disks, boot disks, etc. , I only use Nero 8.

    Good Luck Mate!

    Nero 11 is working here on W8cp.

    TechnoMage, says Nero 8 is working for him.


    The original post is from before the Consumer Preview release so this info is good for the cp release.

    For burning iso files to disk, Win 8 CP natively has the same capability as Win 7. Right click an iso file and choose Burn Disk Image.

    Cool Re: Who can recommend a burner for windows8?

    Well,I've been using Nero almost since it's been on the market. More years than I want to think about! lol
    In all those years I've used Nero up till Nero 8 which I still use, because I own it.
    I still use it with Win-8 and it works just GREAT!

    But for a quickie way to make or burn ISO's, It's hard to beat "ImgBurn"......besides being extremely simple to use, It's also FREE. So today, I use both Nero 8 and ImgBurn, for making my CD's and DVD's. Both work fine for the jobs for which they do best.
    If you want to build a CD with files from different places and make it bootable, then Nero is your program. But if you just need to burn an ISO, then ImgBurn is your program.

    I wouldn't give you a nickel for Nero 9 or more, because they just got too invasive.
    Keep it simple, keep it fast and keep it efficient! That's the way I run my computer.

    Cheers Mates!

    I skipped several versions of Nero from the first version I bought for $99, many years ago.

    But I've been using Nero 8 Pro, for several years now, with absolutely NO problems, with it on XP, Vista, 7 or now 8.
    It just works. But during the install, I say NO to all the options for desktop or Quick Launch shortcuts.
    Then after the install, look for "Nero Burning Rom" in the programs folder and make a shortcut to that program on the desktop. Open the program and set your default 'Burner'. Then it's good to go.

    Of course, it's not, nor has it ever been a FREE program.

    However, there are a number of FREE CD burning programs available for download on the internet.

    My personal favorite in that bunch, is "ImgBurn" (Image Burn). It's quick, efficient and has never let me down, whether making or burning ISO files.

    But, as always, the final choice is up to you (the user). We can only suggest......

    Cheers Mate!
