Question do you really need nero?

Hello mikeotieno.

I just wanna ask you something: Did you ever try k3b? If yes, why is it not good for you, if not, try it. Every feature of nero can be found in a linux app. CD/DVD mastering: k3b, cover creating: kover... What do you miss from Linux, that you need nero?
If you wanna use nero, use windows instead of linux.

I agree with pusrob. What ever you need in linux you will find it. Infact it has good applications for multimedia both playing mp3, watching videos and burning Cds and DVDs. Linux is the best. Which linux distro are you using? Have you tried Mandriva Linux 2006 or SUSE linux 10.0 or 10.1?

Smile something you should know...

Hello mikeotieno.

It would be easier for everybody, to know, for what exactly do you want to use wine. You must know, that wine is not a windows replacement, and many, more complicated apps wont work. So, keeping this in mind, try to specify, for what do you need wine. An advice here: try not to use wine, if its unnecessary, try to find a linux app instead. If you cant find a linux app for that purpose, then you can try to use a winapp through wine. And if you can't install/run the winapp, then you can return here with a particular, exact problem.

Ok there are 2 ways to get your CD working in wine:

Mount the CD as normal (don't forget to put a CD in with some data on it) then try to install your program.

Run winecfg and (also witha CD in) click on the 'Drives' tab, click Add and browse to your CD mount point.

I'm not sure at all that Nero will work properly in wine but there is a linux version of Nero.

Try RipperX or Grip. They both rip to mp3 but they will first rip to wav and then convert to mp3. I believe it is the same with all rippers so you need the space for wavs.
