Differences to Nero
Nero Express is a innovative application offering Wizard assistance. It is used to record disks based on the Nero master application. While compiling a project you can change at any time in the whole process between Nero Express and Nero. Nero Express can be started from Nero by clicking on the Nero Express icon ' ' in the toolbar. Nero Express is particularly recommended for beginners, as it automatically selects the right settings, allowing the user to concentrate on the main objective burning disks. Nero Express will allow you to burn the following compilations onto the disks marked with an X.
Data disk Bootable data disk Audio CD Audio and data CD MP3 disk WMA disk Video CD Super Video CD DVD-Video Copy Image file Saved compilation
CD X X X X X X X X X X X
DDCD X X
DVD X X

The best way to access the Preferences window in Nero is to go to File/ Preferences. This window contains tabs where you can change the general settings for burning media with Nero to suit your own personal needs.
You can change some of the basic settings in this tab. We recommend activating all the checkboxes as this makes Nero easier to work with. You can also see which plugins are installed, which are supported and which are not supported. If you have more than one cover editor installed on your PC, you can define a default editor. Neros cover editor is Nero Cover Designer. You will find more information on this in the corresponding section.
This tab is where you define the drive and path for the cache, i.e. the memory in which data is stored temporarily before and during burning. If you have more than one hard disk installed, we recommend that you check the speed of the various disks and use the fastest as the cache. The speed test cannot check the speed of network drives. We therefore advise you not to choose one of these as the cache.
This tab is where all the installed languages are displayed and where you select the language in which you want the commands and functions and all entries in Nero to be displayed. Only the languages you selected during installation are displayed. If you would like to use a different language, insert the installation CD and install the language.
This tab is where the sounds played in connection with the various burning actions are defined. When Nero is installed, various sounds are loaded, but you can also link other sounds to the burning actions. When the checkbox is activated, the selected sound will be played. When the checkbox is deactivated, the sound will not be played.
Audio CD Player
Nero has an integrated CD player which can play audio files before they are saved so that you can check whether you really want to save them. The player can also play tracks digitally so it can send the audio files direct to the sound card. This means that even if the recorder is not connected to the sound card by a cable the audio files can still be played with the sound card. Insert an Audio CD into your CD drive. Select Save Track from the Recorder menu. Highlight the tracks you want. Click the Play button to play the first track. Tip: The CD player blocks all other functions in Nero so it is not advisable to let it run in the background. However the Nero Wave Editor program which is part of the Nero package provides you with a full CD player which does not affect your working with Nero. You will find this program when you select: Start > Programs Nero > Nero 6 > Nero Wave Editor.
The Nero Wave Editor lets you digitize records and save them on hard disk. You will find detailed instructions on how to do this in the quick guide and the programs online help. When a record is recorded, two tracks are created (one from the from and one from the back). When these two tracks are burned the songs would not be individually controllable with a CD player. The track has to be split to make this possible. The chapter 'Splitting tracks' tells you how to do this.
Very long audio tracks can be split so that specific passages within the track can be triggered directly and/or become a separate track in their own right Long
Creating a CD/DVD 54
audio tracks are created, for example, when copying from record to hard disk, and they can be split before they are burned. 1. Double click the required track in the audio compilation and click the Indexes, Limits, Split tab. 2. Select the position where you want to split the track. 3. Click the Split button. 4. Click OK to close the window and confirm that you really want to split the track. Please also refer to the chapter: 'Indexes, Limits, Split' tab.
Encoding an audio file means compressing it. With Nero you are able to convert audio tracks to the most popular formats such as MP3 and mp3PRO. When they are burned, Nero treats these formats just like other audio formats, so they can be used to create Audio CDs without difficulty, i.e. the compressed files are automatically decoded before they are burned.
MP3 and mp3PRO Because of its good audio quality and small file size the MPEG3 audio format (with the extension MP3) has become the format most used to transmit audio data on the Internet. This is why Nero also supports the burning of the popular MP3 files - Nero handles them just like any other audio files and they are automatically decoded before burning. You can test the Nero mp3PRO encoder plugin as soon as Nero is installed. You can encode up to 30 audio files or pieces of music from CD in the popular MP3 or mp3PRO format. mp3PRO files can be compressed to half the size of the conventional MP3 files with the same quality. These two file types have the same extension: mp3. MP3 Plugin The MP3 plugin uses the brand new and ultrafast MP3 encoder from the Fraunhofer Institut, the inventors of MP3. With the MP3 encoder you can condense your favorite pieces of music down to 10 % of their original size. And with virtually no audible loss of quality! Nero AG would like nothing better than to let its users create as many MP3 files as they want but we cannot do this for licensing reasons as the rights are held by Fraunhofer Institut and we would need to pay them fees. Thats why you can only test the encoder 30 times. If after that you wish to continue using the encoder, you will find further information about buying the mp3PRO plugin in the Webshop. mp3PRO Plugin The mp3PRO plugin uses the brand new and ultrafast mp3PRO encoder from Coding technologies, the inventors of mp3PRO. With the mp3PRO encoder you can condense your favorite pieces of music down to 5 % of their original size. And with virtually no audible loss of quality!
Creating a CD/DVD 55
Nero AG would like to offer you the opportunity to create any number of mp3PRO files, but for licensing reasons this is not possible, because Coding Technologies owns the rights to the encoder, which means that license fees would have to be paid. Thats why you can only test the encoder 30 times. If after that you wish to continue using the encoder, you will find further information about buying the mp3PRO plugin in the Webshop. To use the mp3PRO encoder you must have Nero Version 220.127.116.11 (not a demo version) installed on your PC as a minimum requirement. The high processing power needed to decompress MP3 files means that the maximum possible burning speed will depend on the power of your PC. As a rule of thumb we can say that Pentium systems with a clock speed over 100Mhz should be capable of burning at twice the speed. Computers of Pentium II class and higher should be capable of burning 4 or even 8 times faster. Pentium III or IV PCs can achieve even higher burn speeds. Note: MP3 files downloaded from the Internet may be damaged by transmission errors. Such problems may affect the sound. Nero displays a warning telling you if damaged MP3 files have been added to an audio compilation. During writing, damaged files are logged with the warning message 'Lost sync within the MP3 stream. The MP3 library used by Nero only supports the MPEG Layer3 standard format at present. A similar error message appears if Nero receives MP3 files for decoding and its MPEG3 library cannot process the file format. 18.104.22.168 Encoding Audio CDs The encoding method described in this chapter is only suitable for tracks on Audio CDs. The encoding of audio files that are on hard drive is described in the chapter 'Encoding tracks that are on hard disk'. When you encode audio tracks you can save the encoded and saved tracks as an M3U playlist. You will find full details about this topic in the chapter 'M3U Playlists'. 1. Load the Audio CD with the tracks you wish to encode in a CD drive. 2. Select Save Track from the Extras menu. 3. Select the drive that contains the CD with the tracks that are to be encoded. 4. Highlight the audio tracks you wish to encode. 5. Select the output file format by clicking the dropdown button and highlighting the required format. 6. Click the Settings button and specify the required encoding quality and bitrate. 7. Choose the path for saving the audio file. If the audio file has no meaningful name, you can click the button with the three dots on it and rename the file. 8. Click the Start button to start encoding - a window shows you how encoding is progressing. 9. When encoding is complete, click Close to close the window.
Unzipping the program database Owners of a full version of Nero will find the free program database on their CD. The database is zipped and will have to be unzipped before it can be configured. 1. Unzip the archive 'CDDB.zip' which is on the CD in the 'FreeCDDB' directory and extract it to a new folder on your hard disk. Caution: This requires around 120MB of disk space. 2. In Windows Explorer create another directory (target directory) to hold the imported CD program database. There should still be at least around 250MB of free space on the selected drive. We do not recommend that you locate the Nero database onto a network drive as simultaneous access of the database by several users is not yet supported.
Creating a CD/DVD 59
Note: When installing the database remember that the target drive should still have at least 300MB of free space. Note: Owners of the demo version can also use this free program database. However to do this you must download the free CD database to your PC, e.g. from http://freedb.freedb.org. 22.214.171.124 Importing the program database Depending on how your PC is configured, the database can take up to one day (!) of processing time to import! This is unavoidable because of the sheer size of the database and the large number of cross-references that Nero has to create. Once imported however, read access to the database is very fast. You can cancel the download at any time but we do not advise this, as it CANNOT be resumed. The database would have to be imported again and this would create double entries. 1. Select Import Internet Database from the Extras menu. 2. Select the drive that contains the unzipped directory. 3. Select the destination path for the database. 4. When the import is complete you will see a window asking you if you wish to use this database as the Nero program database. Click Yes to confirm your choice. 126.96.36.199 Creating a user database Unlike the program database which contains information about published CDs, the user database is suitable for your own CD compilations. Creating a user database will ensure that information about CDs you have created yourself is not lost if the program database is overwritten. 1. In Windows Explorer create a directory (target directory) to hold the user database. 2. Select Create a New User Database from the Extras menu and highlight the destination path for the new user database. 3. When the import is complete you will see a window asking you if you wish to use this database as the user database. Click Yes to confirm your choice. 188.8.131.52 Configuring local Nero databases If when you imported the program database/user database you answered Yes when asked if you want to use these as your new database(s), then the directories are entered automatically. However you can still review the settings on the relevant tab after you have imported the database(s). Before using the Nero database just take a little time to make sure that the settings are right. To configure these settings, select File, Preferences and then the Database tab. You will see that there are three setting areas.

5. Click on the Menu tab to create a menu which appears when the CD is inserted. Activate the checkbox and specify how the menu will look in the Layout section. 6. On the ISO tab you can select the ISO level for the length of the names in the 'File-/Directorynames length' section. Up to 31 characters are permitted for Windows 95 and higher. Names cannot be more than 11 characters long for Windows 3.1 (8 for the name and 3 for the extension). ISO Level 2 will be best in most cases if you know that the CD must also be readable on a Windows 3.1 system then you should select Level 1. 7. On the Label tab you can give your CD a name and overtype the default name 'New'. You can use letters A-Z, digits 0-9 and the underscore character (_) diacritics (accents) and spaces are not supported. 8. On the Dates tab you can specify the date of the compilation and of its files. The current date and time are entered for the compilation as default, also the creation date of the files. 9. Use the Misc tab to specify which files will be buffered in the cache. Files that are on slow media (floppy disks and network drives) and are very small are moved to the cache by default. You specify the location of the cache on the Cache tab in the File menu (Preferences option). 10. Once you have selected your settings, click the New button on the right. You will now see the empty compilation window for a Video CD. The large window is for the pictures, the small window for other filetypes. These may be text files or even a software player for your PC. If a File Browser is not open yet you can open one by selecting New File Browser from the View menu or clicking the appropriate 'File Browser' icon. To specify that Nero is started with an open File Browser, check Start with File Browser in the General section on the File Browser tab (File -> Preferences). 11. Compile the files for the Photo CD using Drag&Drop editing by simply clicking on the required files in the File Browser and dragging them into the appropriate compilation window. Clicking the right mouse button opens a context menu where you can selectively add or omit certain file types. In addition there are a number of commands that you will also find in Windows Explorer, such as 'Copy', 'Open and 'Cut'. Double-clicking a picture file opens the 'MPEG Information' dialog box. 'Properties' tab This tab displays basic information about the selected picture. You can also specify the length of the pause after the picture. Click OK to confirm your choice and close the dialog box. Note: If you have highlighted several picture files, the 'Video Properties' dialog box will open. This box displays information about the pictures you have highlighted. You can also specify the pause for all picture files. Click OK to confirm your choice and close the dialog box. 12. Click on the Burn Compilation button or select the Burn Compilation command from the 'Recorder' menu to open the write dialog box. This option is only available when the compilation window is selected, as can be seen from the fact that the title bar is blue. If the File Browser is selected (and the title bar of the compilation window is therefore grayed) the option is not available and CD writing cannot be started. In this case click anywhere in the compilation window. 13. In the Action section activate the other check boxes you require in addition to the Write check box. You will find more information about this section in
Nero Creating a CD/DVD 81
'Before you burn your first disc'. You must remember that when you create a Video CD you must activate the 'Finalize CD' checkbox. This setting write protects the CD and no further writing is possible. All settings on this and the other tabs can now be reviewed and changed if required. 14. Click on the Burn button to start the burn process (or the simulation depending on the chosen option). All the selected steps now run in sequence until writing is complete. You can monitor progress in a status window which shows the individual steps being logged as they are executed. A typical final message would be: 'Burn process was successful with 12x (1800 KB/s). The CD is then ejected. The messages shown can either be saved, printed or discarded. Close the window by clicking on the Discard or Close buttons. 15. You can now check what has been written to your new CD by inserting it again and clicking the 'CD Info icon. 184.108.40.206 Single pictures and slideshows With Nero version 5.0 and higher you can also add single pictures to a (Super) Video CD. Unlike video films, single pictures can and must be encoded by Nero itself. From version V5.5, filetypes bmp, ico, ljp, pbm, pcx, png, tga, tif and wmf can be used as a source for freeze frames. The encoded pictures are stored in the first track and are listed in the SEGMENT directory when the CD contents are viewed on a PC. A (S)VCD must contain at least one further track so Nero generates an additional empty track if the (S)VCD contains single pictures only. It is Neros declared objective to make the production of simple slideshows as easy as possible. For this reason Nero uses the same interface with the user as it does for Audio CDs (a simple list of the pieces on the CD) and creates a CD that plays these pieces in the specified sequence. The pictures are automatically converted to the resolution which is expected of (S)VCD, so the original pictures can have any resolution. Options which can be used to intervene in the picture editing process are planned for future versions of Nero. The creation of small preview pictures that can be magnified to full picture size by means of simple commands is also planned. The resolutions that are supported by both standards are shown below: PAL VCD, normal VCD, high SVCD, normal SVCD, high 352x288 704x576 480x576 704x576 NTSC 352x240 704x480 480x480 704x480

10. Click on the Burn Compilation button or select the Burn Compilation command from the 'Recorder' menu to open the write dialog box. This option is only available when the compilation window is selected, as can be seen from the fact that the title bar is blue. If the File Browser is selected (and the title bar of the compilation window is therefore grayed) the option is not available and CD writing cannot be started. In this case click anywhere in the compilation window. The Burn Compilation dialog box now opens - it is the same as when creating a new compilation but the Burn tab is now in front. 11. In the Action section activate the other check boxes you require in addition to the Write check box. You will find more information about this section in 'Before you burn your first disc'. You must remember that when you create a CD with only one session you must activate the 'Finalize CD' checkbox. This setting write protects the CD and no further writing is possible. (With a Multisession CD this checkbox is only checked for the last session of the CD.) All settings on this and the other tabs can now be reviewed and changed if required. 12. Click on the Burn button to start the burn process (or the simulation depending on the chosen option). All the selected steps now run in sequence until writing is complete. You can monitor progress in a status window which shows the individual steps being logged as they are executed. A typical final message would be: 'Burn process was successful with 12x (1800 KB/s). The CD is then ejected. The messages shown can either be saved, printed or discarded. Close the window by clicking on the Discard or Close buttons. 13. You can now check what has been written to your new CD by inserting it again and clicking the 'CD Info icon.
The UDF file system was developed when it became increasingly obvious that the ISO 9660 file system used on CDs was no longer meeting the needs of rewritable media and DVDs. It was optimized mainly to accommodate large data volumes and to make it easy to modify an existing file system. Nero can burn UDF and so-called 'UDF Bridge CDs', which contain both a UDF and an ISO 9660 file system. The UDF file system can be read by, say, Windows 98 and Windows 2000 with no special drivers. In case of doubt, Windows 2000 and Windows 98 also read the UDF file system if both an ISO 9660 and a UDF file system are detected on the medium. Writing in UDF format is particularly important when burning DVDs because UDF is the preferred operating system for these media.
Creating a UDF CD
Please note that Nero does not yet support Multisession UDF-CDs and that therefore UDF or UDF-Bridge Sessions must be written on blank CDs. Now lets take a step-by-step look at how to create a CD-ROM (UDF) using Nero: All settings may be left at their default values.
Creating a CD/DVD 86
1. Insert an empty CD into the recorder. 2. Start a new compilation by clicking on the appropriate button or the File menu and the command New. 3. Click the 'CD-ROM (UDF)' icon - the Title tab is in front. Use the tabs to specify the attributes of the compilation, such as the name of the CD, different characteristics and restrictions. On this tab you can give your CD a name and overtype the default name 'New'. You can use letters A-Z, digits 09 and the underscore character (_) diacritics (accents) and spaces are not supported. 4. On the Dates tab you can specify the date of the compilation and of its files. The current date and time are entered for the compilation as default, also the creation date of the files. 5. Use the Misc tab to specify which files will be buffered in the cache. Files that are on slow media (floppy disks and network drives) and are very small are moved to the cache by default. You specify the location of the cache on the Cache tab in the File menu (Preferences option). 6. Once you have selected your settings, click the New button on the right. You will now see the empty compilation window for CD-ROM. 7. If a File Browser is not open yet you can open one by selecting New File Browser from the View menu or clicking the appropriate 'File Browser' icon. To specify that Nero is started with an open File Browser, check Start with File Browser in the General section on the File Browser tab (File -> Preferences). 8. Compile the files for the CD using Drag&Drop editing by simply clicking on the required files in the File Browser and dragging them into the compilation window. Clicking the right mouse button opens a context menu where you can selectively add or omit certain file types. In addition there are a number of commands that you will also find in Windows Explorer, such as 'Copy', 'Open and 'Cut'. 9. When compiling with Drag&Drop the directory structure is moved across too, i.e. if you drag an entire folder into the compilation window the folder will be created on the CD you wish to burn. If you drag a lot of individual files however this may affect the clarity of the CDs contents. To avoid this you can create new folders within the compilation. To do this, select the Create Folder option from the Edit menu or click the right mouse button and choose the command from the context menu. A folder you have just created is assigned the name New by default and can be renamed immediately. You can create as many folders as you need and pull the existing files across using Drag&Drop. You can of course drag other files into the compilation window from the File Browser. 10. Click on the Burn Compilation button or select the Burn Compilation command from the 'Recorder' menu to open the write dialog box. This option is only available when the compilation window is selected, as can be seen from the fact that the title bar is blue. If the File Browser is selected (and the title bar of the compilation window is therefore grayed) the option is not available and CD writing cannot be started. In this case click anywhere in the compilation window.
On the internal functioning of this command: Nero tries first of all to find the format of the data tracks. Then all blocks of data tracks are saved to the image file. Finally, if necessary, further adaptation work is undertaken to allow the data tracks to be burnt onto non-empty CDs. For the experts among you: the ISO file system has to be "relocated" if necessary. Do not despair: Nero will handle the whole thing for you without you having to give it a thought.
Note: Nero controls the saving of ISO and HFS data tracks. The vast majority of existing CD ROMs for PCs and Apple Macintosh are saved in this format. However if the data on the CD is neither in ISO (PC) nor HFS (Macintosh) format the results when burning onto a non-empty CD can be non-functional. You can find the format of the data track from the display of the track list after selecting the Save Track command. If the appropriate track is displayed neither as ISO, HFS, hybrid nor Joliet but only as "data mode 1", without any more
Nero Saving tracks using Nero 103
details, proceed with care! Nero allows you the opportunity to save and burn data tracks in unknown formats onto it (for example native Unix file systems). Here all blocks of the track are then simply copied 1:1. The responsibility for deciding whether you can burn such a track "without relocating it" onto a nonempty CD is left entirely up to you.

LightScribe System requirements
To create LightScribe labels, separate hardware and software system requirements need to be considered.
Operating system Windows 2000 Windows XP Windows 2003 Server Windows Media Center Edition 2004 or larger Software Nero 220.127.116.11 (or higher) LightScribe Host Software must be installed Hardware LightScribe compatible recorder LightScribe suitable disc
Printing LightScribe labels
LightScribe is a process that enables CDs and DVDs to be labeled in the recorder. This requires both a suitable burner and a special medium. The label side of the media has a special color layer and sometimes also a thermal layer; this is heated by the laser in the recorder in such a way that images and text are printed on the medium. After burning the compilation, the disc is simply removed from the recorder, turned over and the LightScribe label is created. When a label is created, Nero Cover Designer opens. If you have created disc labels before using Nero Cover Designer, then you will be able to create LightScribe labels without any problem. For their creation, it basically does not matter whether a label is printed on paper and then stuck onto the medium or printed directly on the medium. You will find full details on how to create labels in the Nero Cover Designer manual.

The Virus Checker is only available with the retail version of Nero. For safety reasons, an antivirus program has been integrated into Nero, which checks the data to be written onto the CD in order to ensure that no files with viruses are included on the CD. You can keep the antivirus database, which is the key part of any antivirus software, constantly updated via the Internet.
Updating the database
1. Set up an Internet connection. 2. Start Nero. 3. Choose Update Antivirus scanner from the Help menu. 4. In the dialog box which appears, click on OK to start the update. A link is created to the FTP server and the database is automatically updated. After the update has been successfully completed, you will see a message telling you that the database is now up-to-date. 5. Click on the OK button to close the dialog box. Note: We recommend that you update the antivirus database regularly.
Nero level indicator
The level indicator is at the bottom of the Nero main window. The level indicator allows you to tell whether the data you have selected will fit on the disc. As data is normally measured in megabytes and audio data in minutes of playing time, the Nero level indicator switches between megabytes and minutes depending on the type of data being written to CD. A blue bar in the level indicator shows the size of the current compilation. Standard CDs normally have a capacity of 650 MB (or 74 minutes). There are now blank CDs available with a capacity of 80, 90 and 99 minutes. Therefore the capacity of blank CDs is currently between 74 and 99 minutes. The Nero level indicator attempts to accommodate this by showing a yellow line at 74 minutes (or 650 MB) and a red dashed line at 80 minutes (or 700 MB). If you want to move these markings, you can do so using the Nero Preferences menu item. See the section 'Modifying the Nero level indicator'. You should note however that the value you enter here only affects the display of the level indicator. It is not possible, by changing these values, to create extra storage space where none actually exists. If you want, you can also switch off the display of the level indicator from the Nero Preferences dialog box.
Automatic system shutdown at the end of the burning process
Nero can, if you want, shut down Windows and switch off your computer at the end of the burning process. In some cases the PC cannot be automatically switched off, although you have selected the shutdown option. This may be for one of the following reasons: The energy saving and/or ACPI options in the BIOS are deactivated. The PC does not support 'software power off'. Only ATX motherboards (not AT motherboards) support this. ACPI support is not correctly installed. An application installed on the PC which is still active is preventing the PC from being switched off automatically. Some older motherboards have problems with ACPI support. If problems occur, make sure that you are using the most recent BIOS from the motherboard manufacturer. In this case, check your Windows installation and the BIOS options. Sometimes it is also helpful to install the CD driver which was supplied with the motherboard. Most of these driver CDs contain Windows drivers or patches which enable Windows to carry out a 'software power off'. As a general rule, if Windows does not shut down automatically when you press Alt+F4 and choose 'Shutdown', Nero will not be able to shut Windows down automatically.
Note: If your PC is running Windows NT4 or 2000 and you have no admin privileges, you may not be permitted to shutdown the PC, because you do not have the necessary permissions.
Activating automatic system shutdown
Points to note We strongly recommend that you close all other applications when the shutdown option is activated. The reason for this is that all open applications are closed when the system is shut down automatically. Some applications may ask, for example, if the current document should be saved. In this case, Windows will not permit Nero to shut down the system, because data from other applications could be lost. How to activate automatic system shutdown 1. Create a compilation in the usual way and start the burning process. 2. In the burning process dialog box activate the check box 'Automatically shut down the PC when done'.
I can read the CD that I have burnt in my recorder, but not in all CD/DVD-ROM drives. Why is this?
Please check whether you have written your data to a rewritable CD (CD-RW). You can only read CD-RWs in recorders and in more recent MultiRead compatible CD/DVD-ROM drives. If you want to ensure that your CDs can be read in any drive, use CD-Rs and not CD-RWs.
15.1.10 My fast SCSI CD/DVD-ROM drive can only read relatively slowly using Nero. Why is this? Why is this?
You probably have an out-of-date WinASPI driver layer on your PC. Look on the website belonging to the manufacturer of your SCSI adapter to see if you can find new ASPI or Miniport drivers. If you are a registered user, you can also contact Nero AG Support. E-mail: email@example.com
15.1.11 How do I remove the irritating 2-second pause between audio tracks?
To create an audio CD without pauses between the tracks, follow these instructions: 1. In the compilation window, select those audio tracks which you don't want a pause before. Note: You cannot remove the 2-second pause before the first audio track. This pause is not played by audio CD players, as CDs are always played from the end of the first pause. 2. From the Edit menu, choose the Properties item or right-click in the compilation window and then choose Properties from the pop-up menu. 3. A dialog box appears in which you can set the length of the pause. Here you can enter '0' as the pause length. 4. Click on the OK button to save the settings and close the dialog box.
15.1.12 The audio CDs which I have burnt have sound interference such as crackling, humming or rustling. Why is this?
Your problems are probably caused by so-called audio jitter. This is the result of fundamental hardware problems when reading audio data. You can resolve the interference problems as follows: read the CD more slowly or, if possible, at 1X speed, or select the Nero jitter correction function, or, if you can't resolve the problem in any other way, use more suitable hardware to read the audio data. This applies in particular to CD/DVD-ROM drives. It is a good idea to buy high-quality hardware from a well-known manufacturer. You may find it helpful to look at test reports in one of the many computer magazines.

mp3PRO Plug-in (commercially available)*
The mp3PRO Plug-in is capable of creating files smaller than MP3 files with the same or better sound quality. For example, at 64 kBit/s, the new Codec promises near-CD quality, which is significantly better than MP3 at the same bit rate. You can continue to play back your old MP3 files normally on a new mp3PRO player. However, mp3PRO files played back on a new mp3PRO decoder of course offer the optimum sound quality. This plug-in gives you the opportunity to encode unlimited audio files in mp3PRO or MP3 format. For example, you can archive all your CDs on your hard disk. For licensing reasons, we are only permitted to integrate test versions into Nero 6 Ultra Edition. This gives you the chance to test out the encoder functions for a limited time. To activate the test version, you must purchase the corresponding encoder plug-in separately. You can do this at http://www.nero.com in the webshop. For a better user experience, the encoder is available separately only for those users who specifically want to utilize it, instead of adding this cost on for all users who may not want the encoder.
Updates (free downloads)
At http://www.nero.com, you will find regular updates for all programs, with new functions integrated and/or errors eliminated. You can either retrieve these updates via your Nero ProductCenter or just look at the Nero website from time to time. In order to optimize the functionality of your programs, we recommend that you keep them up to date. On the Nero homepage at http://www.nero.com, you can find regular updates, product news, plug-ins and much more.
