Nero 7 Sucks
« on: March 02, 2006, 06:57:15 PM »
Hey folks,

Just figured I'd give a heads up to anyone that uses Nero for burning audio CDs.  Do NOT upgrade from 6 to 7.  It's absolute trash compared with 6.  The first "minor" annoyance is that you can no longer seamlessly switch back and forth between the classic and eXpress views.  Express used to work very well as a quick way to drop a bunch of tracks on a disc, hit the "no pregap", and then switch modes if you wanted to do anything fancy like cd audio.  Now it's strictly one mode or the other for a project.

Worse still is the fact that Nero 7 seems to fight you at every turn in your attempts to burn a cd with no pregaps.  You can hit "New Project", select "Gapless", and yet when you add tracks they'll all show up as having a 2 second pregap.  WTF?  If you hit the button again before burning, you'll still get the gaps.  You have to select tracks 2-n, force 0 seconds, AND select the "no pregap" button again before burning.  It makes no freakin' sense.

Since installing this piece of crap a few days ago, I've burned as many coasters as good discs.  Avoid this upgrade.  I only wanted it for the updated NeroVision which it turns out is STILL not able to do a lot of stuff it proclaims to do.  Gotta see if I can uninstall and revert to version 6 now.  I'm tired of throwing CDs across the room into the trash.

i downloaded a trial version cause i needed something to burn on my bosses new computer - holy shit did it suck

glad to hear you had problems with the gap between tracks as well. i thought i was retarded or something, such a pain in the ass.

the other thing i didn't like was that each time you do a new project it comes up in a new window instead of a new tab. really dissapointing as I loved prior versions of Nero.

It's bloated that is for sure, but I installed the ROM only and not all that other crap and I like it! Only annoyance I have with it...when you are adding files to a project via the right click add files method, you select the files and hit okay, it adds the files, then pops that damn add files window open again.
I don't know just where I'm going
But I'm gonna try for the kingdom, if I can
