6.1.1 Multisession Tab

The Multisession tab provides the option to create multisession discs for data discs. Multisession discs can be burned in multiple sessions until you have reached the maximum disc capacity. A session is a self-contained data area that is burned using a single process, and consists of a lead-in (with the table of contents), one or more tracks, and a lead-out. Discs without the multisession option, e.g. audio CDs, are burned in a single session. Multisession discs are particularly suitable for backing up important files burned on a regular basis. If a new multisession disc is being started, Nero Burning ROM also saves (if possible) the point of origin for the files. This information is used when continuing the multisession disc. If a multisession disc is being continued, Nero Burning ROM automatically sets a cross reference to the imported session, i.e. the table of contents for the imported session is copied to the table of contents for the current session. You must define which session is being imported at the start of the burn process. The files in the previous sessions are retained and continue to take up space. In the case of unchanged files, a cross reference is set to the file of the same name in the previous session. Check the Replace files in compilation and Add new files to compilation boxes to ensure that changes and new files are incorporated into the table of contents and burned again. The boxes are checked by default. In this case Nero Burning ROM automatically verifies whether the correct multisession disc has been inserted for continuation. If not, the disc is ejected. If you uncheck the Finalize disc box on the Burn tab, you can always write additional sessions to the disc, but then only the last session will be visible and you will only be able to access data from the last session.

Fig. 4: Multisession tab

The Multisession tab contains the following radio buttons in the Multisession area: Burns the selected compilation in one session to the disc. Start Multisession Disc If the disc already contains sessions, you can also select this option. Sessions are then not imported and cross references are not set. Continues a multisession disc by burning an additional session to a disc with at least one session. Cross references to the imported session are set in the process. Creates a disc without a multisession.
Continue Multisession Disc No Multisession
The Options area is only active if the Continue Multisession disc radio button is selected. It contains the following configuration options: Refreshes the session by creating a cross reference to the imported session. Refresh compilation when importing session check box This function is useful if backups are always being burned from the same folder in which most of the files are the same. The cross reference saves space. If you want to burn totally different files in a further session, we recommend that you uncheck the box. Burns files of the same name again. This enables you to ascertain when the file should be burned again: Archive Attribute Set Replace files in compilation check box File date or length changed File content changed Always If the box is unchecked, Nero Burning ROM sets a cross reference to the file in the previous session. We recommend that you uncheck this box for backup discs.

Remove deleted files from compilation check box Add new files to compilation check box
Removes deleted files of the same name from the table of contents for the new session. A cross reference is not set to the file in the previous session, so you cannot access it anymore. (However the "removed" files are still on the disc and continue to take up space). We recommend that you uncheck this box for backup discs. Burns new files that have been added. We recommend that you check this box for backup discs.

6.1.2 ISO Tab

The ISO tab provides options for configuring the ISO file system. ISO 9660 is a system-independent standard. It can be read on all operating systems. The following features apply: Permits eight characters (level 1) and/or 31 characters (level 2) for the file name. Permits eight characters for the directory name. Restricts the maximum directory depth to eight levels (including root folder). The characters A-Z, 0-9, and the underscore (_) are allowed. Joliet is a standard that has been designed for Microsoft Windows 95 and Microsoft Windows NT. Up to 64 characters are supported in the file name (8 characters in DOS). The characters A-Z, a-z as well as foreign language characters may be used. The following configuration options are available in the Data and File area: Data Mode combo box Selects the mode for the data. Mode 1 and Mode 2/XA are available. Later model drives can easily read mode 1 and mode 2. Some older drives, however, cannot read mode 1 discs correctly. If the disc is also to be readable on older drives, you should select mode 2/XA. Selects the file system used for the data. ISO 9660 only and ISO 9660 + Joliet are available. File system combo box ISO 9660 only: ISO format alone is used. ISO 9660 + Joliet: ISO format is used and is enhanced by the Joliet standard. File name length combo box Font combo box Defines the possible length of the file name. Level 1 and Level 2 are available. In level 1 the file name can be eight characters long and the file name extension (e.g. *.doc) three characters. In level 2 the file name can be 31 characters long. Defines the font used.

Nero Burning ROM 27

Green capacity bar Yellow capacity bar (from the yellow mark on the scale) Red capacity bar (from the red mark on the scale)
The data will fit on the disc. The data might fit on the disc. The size of the disc that has been inserted will determine whether the data will fit or not. The data will not fit on the disc (unless you have inserted an oversize disc).
The yellow and red marks are set by default for discs that are commercially available. The disc type you have selected will determine the exact scale value. For example, blank CDs are available with a capacity of 650 MB or 700 MB. Therefore the yellow mark is set for CDs at 650 MB and the red at 700 MB. If the capacity scale is hidden, you can show it again by clicking on the File > Options > Show compilation size menu and by checking the box Show compilation size in the Nero status bar.

Selecting Files

You select files by dragging them from the browser area to the compilation area in the selection screen. The same principle is used for all disc formats. To select and compile files, proceed as follows:
1. Select the files/folders that you want to burn from the browser area. 2. Drag the required files/folders into the compilation area.
The files/folders are displayed in the compilation area and the capacity bar indicates how much space is required on the disc. Nero Burning ROM supports virtual search folders in the Windows Vista operating system. The search is selecrted by dragging it into the compilation area. If you want to select the files of the search folder, you must open the search folder and drag the files into the compilation.
3. If you want to save the compilation with the selected files:
1. Click on the icon. The Save As window is opened. 2. Select a file name and a storage location and click on the Save button. The compilation is saved and the Save As window is closed. You have successfully selected the files for burning and can now start the burn process (see Burning a Compilation).

File Selection Details

There are certain details that you need to bear in mind when selecting files.

7.3.1 Audio CD

Two additional buttons are available in the compilation area for the audio CD disc format: Play Edit Plays the selected audio file. Opens Nero WaveEditor.
Nero WaveEditor is an application in the Nero 8 Suite and is automatically installed while Nero 8 is being installed. You can use Nero WaveEditor to create your own audio files or to edit existing ones. You can also digitize records and store them on the hard drive. For further information refer to the Nero WaveEditor manual. Source audio files for an audio CD may be stored on your hard drive as compressed audio files, or originate from one or more audio CDs. You can also select an M3U playlist as the source. Nero Burning ROM automatically finds the MP3 audio files for burning whose paths are stored in the M3U playlist. Audio CDs with copy protection have been on the market for a while. It is not possible to either play or copy these using a computer. The copy protection is identifiable by a notice on the cover of the original CD. If you select audio files directly from an audio CD in a drive, you cannot specify a CD Text for the CD because audio files that have a drive as the source can only be burned in trackat-once mode. CD Text can only be burned in disc-at-once mode. If you want to specify a CD text for the audio files you have selected from the audio CD, save the audio files to your hard drive (see Saving Audio Files) and then add them to the compilation. When you drag the required audio file into the compilation area, the Adding file(s) window is opened and the file analyzed. If you have selected a file from an audio CD, the Enter Source CD Name window is opened where you are asked to assign a name to this CD. The name that you assign to the CD is used by default as part of the file name. The name is also important if you select audio files from multiple audio CDs. During the burn process, Nero Burning ROM prompts you to insert the required CD and quotes the CD name you selected. You can edit the audio files in the compilation or change the properties (see Audio Track Properties window).

10.1 Creating an Image File
To create an image file, proceed as follows:
1. Click on the New button. 2. Create a new compilation of your choice (see New Compilation).
Using Nero Burning ROM you can also create image files for disc types that the installed burner cannot burn. You can enable this function via the File > Options > Expert Features menu, Enable all supported recorder formats for image recorder check box. The dropdown menu in the Compilation window then makes available all supported disc types (CD, DVD, HD DVD and Blu-ray disc).
3. Select the files that you want to burn (see Selecting Files). 4. If you have installed multiple burners, select Nero Image Recorder from the combo box. 5. Click on the Burn button.
6. Click on the Burn button.
The Save Image File window is opened.
7. Specify a file name and a storage location for the image file and click on the Save button.
The image file is created and saved in the selected storage location. On the screen, a progress bar indicates the progress made while the file is being created. Once the creation process is over, a dialog box is opened.
8. Click on the OK button.
The dialog box is closed and you have successfully created the image file.
10.2 Burning an image file
To burn a saved image file, proceed as follows:
1. Select a burner from the combo box (not Nero Image Recorder). 2. Click on the
button in the main screen. The Open browser window is opened.
3. Select the desired image file and click on the Open button.
The Burn Compilation window with the Burn tab is opened.
4. Proceed with the burn process (see Burning a Compilation).
You have successfully burned an image file.


Nero Burning ROM can be used for copying discs. There are two methods for this: On-the-fly copying Copy over image Each method has advantages and disadvantages which will depend on your requirements.
11.1 On-the-fly Copying Versus Copy Over Image
11.1.1 On-the-fly Copying
LOLWhen using the on-the-fly method, insert the original disc into a drive and a blank disc into the burner. The original disc in the drive is copied immediately without any time delay to the blank disc in the burner. The on-the-fly method allows you to copy very fast and does not require any additional storage space. In order to be able to use the on-the-fly method, you will need at least two drives: one for reading the disc and a burner for writing. The following requirements apply to the drive and burner: The burner must have a function for protecting against buffer underruns or the drive must be capable of delivering the data sufficiently fast. The read speed must be at least as high as the write speed to ensure that a buffer underrun does not occur. It is more reliable when the read speed is twice as fast as the write speed. The drive must be capable of delivering information on the number and type of sessions, otherwise Nero Burning ROM may not be able to produce an exact copy. On-the-fly copying can have the following disadvantages: If the burner does not have a function for protecting against buffer underruns, the on-thefly method is highly sensitive to read errors. The reason for this is as follows: if errors occur while the disc is being read because it is scratched, it is not possible to try to eliminate the error by reading the disc several times for example because, in contrast to the copy-over-image method, there is not enough time (danger of buffer underrun). Index positions in audio files get lost. The reason for this is as follows: Index positions only become identifiable if the corresponding position on the CD is read. However, on-the-fly copies can only be burned using the disc-at-once method. With this method the information on the index positions must be available before the burn process begins. This means that Nero Burning ROM cannot copy over index positions. The quality of audio data read in may suffer. The reason for this is as follows: Nero Burning ROM reads several megabytes of data at a time from the drive, Nero Burning ROM transfers the data to the cache, and writes the data to the burner. If the data transfer slows down because the buffer in Nero Burning ROM is full for instance, the reading head of the drive has to jump back to a previous position. Some drives cannot position the read head precisely for Audio CDs, which means that corrupt audio data may be transferred sometimes.

Hard drive speed info area

11.2.2 Copy Options Tab

The following configuration options are available on the Copy Options tab: General area On-the-fly check box Source area Drive combo box Read speed combo box Selects the drive for reading the disc. If a copy over image is created, we recommend that you select the burner for reading in. Defines the speed at which the disc is read in. Creates the copy using the on-the-fly method. If this box is unchecked, the copy is created using the copyover-image method.

11.2.3 Read Options Tab

On the Read Options tab you can select options for reading the original disc. The following options are available: Profile area Profile selection combo box Selects predefined copy settings or a user-defined setting. In the case of predefined copy settings, Nero Burning ROM sets the configuration options automatically. You can select the configuration options yourself with a user-defined setting. Ignores read errors on the original disc and continues the read process. If this box is unchecked, Nero Burning ROM may interrupt the burn process depending on the type of error that occurs. Still passes on corrupt sectors (that have caused read errors) for burning. If this box is unchecked, corrupt sectors are not passed on and remain blank. Reads PQ subchannel data.

6. Proceed with the burn process (see Starting the Burn Process).
You have successfully copied a disc.

Audio Database

In Nero Burning ROM you can create, edit, and use audio databases. The database files contain information on the title, artist, and audio files of an audio CD. You can also use the database from the web page; Nero Burning ROM provides an interface for this.
12.1 Creating an Audio Database
In order to be able to use a database in Nero Burning ROM, you must first create it. Nero Burning ROM provides two types of database: Program database User database
12.1.1 Creating a Program Database
You can use Nero Burning ROM to create a program database. The program database is populated with entries from the Internet database on the website. Once you have created the program database, it is located locally on your hard drive. The advantage over use of the interface is that you have fast read access to the database and can also change the entries in the database. No active Internet connection is required. The disadvantage, however, is that the program database cannot be updated automatically. In order to record information on recently issued Audio CDs, you must re-import the database or add the Audio CD to the database manually (see Adding a Database Entry). There are two steps involved in the creation of a program database in Nero Burning ROM: Download a database from the Internet Import this database to Nero Burning ROM To create the program database, proceed as follows:
1. Download the database from the website and save the database on your
hard drive. The database is at least 160 MB. Downloading of the database does not take place in Nero Burning ROM. Nero AG is not responsible for the website, but just provides an interface to it.
2. Click on the Database > Import Internet Database menu in the main Nero Burning ROM
screen. A dialog box is opened informing you that the import may take several hours. The import takes a long time because of the sheer size of the database and the numerous cross references that Nero Burning ROM creates. Although you can cancel the procedure at any time, we advise against it because the procedure cannot be resumed. The database would have to be imported again, which would involve duplicate entries.

Add Selected CD

Selected CD
12.4 Create a New CD Entry Window
The Create a New CD Entry window refers to a database entry. Information on the CD title and the individual audio files is displayed for the database entry. The window is opened if you want to edit an existing database entry or add a new entry to the database. With the latter the text boxes are still empty.
Fig. 18: Create a New CD Entry window
The window consists of a drop-down menu, six text boxes, six check boxes, and buttons.
The drop-down menu contains the options CD Title and Track. The track entries correspond to the audio files of the CD. In the text boxes you can enter the relevant information on the CD title or on an audio file. The text boxes each refer to the entry which is selected in the drop-down menu. The Autocopy the following information from the CD title entry to the track entries area is only available if you selected the CD Title entry from the drop-down menu. In this area you can define which of the entries you made for the CD title are added to the text boxes for the audio files. The following buttons are available: Previous Next OK Cancel Jumps back one entry in the drop-down menu and offers the text boxes for this entry. Jumps forward one entry in the drop-down menu and offers the text boxes for this entry. Adds the changes to the database and closes the window. Cancels the procedure and closes the window.
The database entry can only be stored when the text boxes for title, artist, and genre have all been filled in for the CD title.
12.5 Changing a Database Entry
To change an entry, proceed as follows:
1. If you want to open the program database, click on the Database > Open Program CD
Database menu. The Nero CD Database window is opened.
2. If you want to open the user database, click on the Database > Open User CD Database
menu. The User CD Database is opened.
3. Click on the Edit CD button.
The Create a New CD Entry window is opened. The CD Title entry is selected in the drop-down menu. The text boxes for the CD title are displayed.
4. Edit the information in the text boxes Title, Artist, Producer, Comment, Genre, and Year
according to your requirements.
5. Use the check boxes to define what information is to be added to the text boxes for the

individual audio files.

6. Click on the Next button.
The entry Track 1 is selected in the drop-down menu. The text boxes for the first audio file are displayed.
7. Edit the information in the text boxes according to your requirements. 8. Repeat both of the previous steps for all audio files.

13.1.1 AC3, AIF, MP4, OGG and WAV encoding options
Nero Burning ROM can encode audio files of an audio CD in AC3, AIF, MP4, OGG and WAV formats. Set these options in dialog windows that you can open in the Save Tracks window via the Settings button. Depending on the output file format you have selected, a window is opened that includes encoding options that are easy to identify. The options to be set depend on the output file format.

Nero Burning ROM 62

The following settings are available for the different file formats: AC3 file format: AC3 encorder settings window Bite Rate combo box File formate Frequency combo box Bits combo box Channels combo box Specifies the scan rate per second and thus determines the frequency of scanning. The higher the frequency, the more frequently scanned. Specifies the scan accuracy and thus determines the quality of the individual scanner. Specifies which channels are recorded. Specifies the bit rate, i.e. the data flow per unit of time and the quality of the saved data. The default value of 128 is near CD quality.
File format MP4: Nero Digital Audio Encorder Settings window Quality controller Specifies the bit rate, i.e. the data flow per unit of time and the quality of the saved data. If the bit rate is small, less data is transferred, the file is then small, but quality is lower. If the bit rate is high, more data is transferred, the file size is then large, but the quality is high. Specifies a constant bit rate, i.e. the data flow per unit of time and the quality of the saved data, is the same over the entire audio file. If the bit rate is small, less data is transferred, the file is then small, but quality is lower. If the bit rate is high, more data is transferred, the file size is then large, but the quality is high. The default value of 128 is near CD quality. Specifies a variable bit rate, i.e. the data flow per unit of time and the quality of the saved data, adapts to the dynamic of the audio file. The bit rate, for example, can be lowered at quieter points in the track. You can set the variable bit rate between 0 and 100. 0 is the lowest quality, 100 the highest quality.
File format OGG: OGG Vorbis settings
Constant Bit Rate check box
Variable Bit Rate check box
13.1.2 MP3 and MP3PRO encoding options
Nero Burning ROM can encode audio files of an audio CD in MP3 and MP3PRO formats. Set these options in the mp3PRO window that you can open in the Save Tracks window via the Settings button. Ensure that you have selected mp3/mp3PRO as the Output file format.

17.2 Updating the Virus Scanner
A virus scanner that checks the data to be burned is integrated in Nero Burning ROM. This ensures that infected data will not be burned. We recommend that you update the virus scanner database regularly. The database is updated via an Internet connection. To update the virus scanner, proceed as follows: Requirement: You must have an active Internet connection.
1. Click on the Help > Update Antivirus Scanner menu.
A dialog box is opened which reminds you to connect to the Internet.

2. Click on OK.

Nero Burning ROM is connected to the FTP server and the antivirus files are downloaded. The Downloading File window is opened; a progress bar indicates the progress being made by the update process. When the database has been updated, a dialog box is opened with a message indicating that the database is now updated.

3. Click on OK.

You have successfully updated the virus scanner database.


18.1 Configuration Options

Buffer underruns are caused when there is an interruption to the flow of data to the internal buffer of the burner. This is can be the fault of the software or the hardware itself. When recording, data is fed continuously to the burner's buffer in order to keep a steady flow of data which is required when recording. When something interrupts that steady flow, it can cause a buffer underrun and your disc is no longer useable. Most modern burners have a protective mechanism against buffer underruns.

Red Book

This standard describes the CD-DA.
Small Computer System Interface. Bus system to which different terminal devices such as a SCSI hard drive, streamers or a CD burner may be connected. At this time, SCSI is the only possibility of operating a CD-burner on a typically-used computer system.


Smallest addressable information unit on a CD. A sector is composed of 2,352 bytes of which - depending on the type of CD used - differing amounts are available as user data. A sector generally consists of a header, synchronization bits, and user data. It may also have error detection and correction data. A drive with a basic read speed of 1/75 seconds is required to read a sector.


Discs such as CDs and DVDs are divided into tracks and sessions. A session is a selfcontained data area that is burned using a single process, and consists of a lead-in, one or more tracks, and a lead-out. In principle, a session is comparable to the partition on a hard drive. A multisession disc can contain multiple sessions.


Performs all steps in a burn process without using the laser beam. We recommend running a simulation if you are decompressing data before burning, e.g. when burning an audio CD from MP3 files. You can assume that if simulation is successful, the burn process will also be successful.
Data unit that joins successive sectors on a disc. On an audio CD a track corresponds to a piece of music. Several tracks together with the lead-in and lead-out constitute a session.

Track-at-once (TAO)

Writing method in which each track is written individually to the CD. The writing process is interrupted briefly after each track, i.e. the laser switches off. With this writing method, writing to a CD can be paused and continued later.


Transcoding refers to the conversion from one audio format to another, e.g. WAV files to MP3 files.
Video Compact Disc, Video CD. Movies, audio, and video data is stored using the MPEG compression standard. VCDs can be played by the majority of CD-ROMs, DVD players, and DVD-ROM drives with the appropriate software for processing this video format.

Volume descriptor

Area at the beginning of a CD containing the structure of the file system. It may also contain additional and optional information about the CD (e.g. the name of the CD, the publisher, the copyright notice).
Audio format developed by Microsoft for Windows. There is no data compression when converting. WAV is the equivalent to Apple's AIF format.

Yellow Book

The Yellow Book is the standard for the format of CDs used for data storage.
