Cool Burning ISO files, a Nero alternative


Just an information post....

Had two hours of Nero 5.5 frustration (would not recognise cd/dvd recorder despite downloading drivers/help tools etc.) trying to burn .iso to CD. But found this freeware site:

Look for 'freeware iso burner' under your search engine (author= alex feinman)

There is no program to run as such, its a self-extracting file that automatically associates itself with .iso files. Its as simple as right-click .iso file and copy.

Was a breeze after all that Nero b******s.

Fantastic!

cdrecord -v dev=0,0,0 -eject -speed=48 driveropts=burnfree -dao file.iso works also and is free as it gets. run cdrecord -scanbus to find out what your dev is. for 2.6 kernels dev=/dev/cdrom or whatever your cdrom drive is

Smile @masand

i dont think we need to register nero linux for money. I think its registration is free, but you have to regsiter the software to get more features i think. I posted it without overlooking some details.
Pls correct me if iam wrong

You need to register the copy of Nero 6 that you already have on your windows machine in order to get a free download. Correct me if I am wrong.. it is not a free offer. People like me dont even have windows so I really don't understand what Nero people are trying to do.. BTW K3B does everything- why bother with nero?

What do you mean by 'multiple tracks' ? I have used K3B to burn music disks with 25 tracks ... in stereo.
