Nero Lite & Micro Build

Nero Lite is an custom created installer for the main Nero Burning Rom applications.

Why don’t you use Nero 7/8?

Nero 7/8 has become bloatware and it’s difficult to make the setup program install silently. Also by default Nero installs a lot of DirectShow filters which may interfere with my video recording software.

Why not use another burning program?

When it comes to burning Nero does have an intuitive user interface, has proven stability and compatibility with most burners. It may even supports burning HD-DVD and BlueRay, and it can print Labelflash cd’s.
But face it, there are other free cd burning applications in development which are making progress.
If you want a free burning program I can recommend ImgBurn. Its user interface is not exactly like Nero, but it will do all burning tasks just fine.
Recently a new project got my attention: InfraRecorder. InfraRecorder is open source, lightweight and the interface works just like Nero. Although it looks nice, it is not very stable yet.

Do I loose functionality when switching to Nero Lite?

I try to keep Nero Lite functionality as complete as possible, so definitely usability over space. Of course I do remove a lot of stuff, but none of these is essential for burning plain cd’s. If you ran into a problem, don’t be shy to post.
Micro version is for people who only want a full functional Nero Burning ROM version, but without any extra software like CoverDesigner and WaveEditor.

Thank you CyberMania for your hard work.


this is not compatibile with Windows 7


who say so? i am running win 7 at the moment… so far so good


what is the difference between normal and euro?
and,this is nero 8 right?
why not nero 9?


    if the question refer to nero lite/ micro… normal one english lang only. euro comes with extra language.
    nero 9 is screw up, registration need activation what ever and bloated. Nero 8 still the best. Future i think nero will die.


Agreed Nero 8 is the best.

I wonder what burning software will replace Nero in the future..?


Well, I use CDBurnerXP.

Simple, open source, freeware, small and useful (even portable), but not as complete as NERO suite (I mean, more than 200MB must include special features on it).

I don’t know what NERO Lite/Micro could offer to me (well, perhaps Blueray support).

As Cybercloner said, ImgBurn is so good, also Infra Recorder (but seems to be a died project). I’ll check ImgBurn next 🙂
