Cpy original nero to a cd

by greenlot / December 5, 2010 4:40 PM PST

Hi all,

Can you tell me how I can copy Nero software on a CD since I haven't got the original disk? This is Nero 7; I know is old but enough for want I need to do.

Re: copy a program to CD

Find your burning program (Nero probably) and copy the folder from Program Files to CD. Then you have the program on CD.

But I don't expect you can install or run it on another PC from there. To do that you need the original install CD. In that case, either buy that CD, or download free cdburnerxp. It might be able to do what you need.

Let me be blunt.

By design this is not supposed to be possible. The answer is no.

But you can find other fine CD burning apps so I'll give a short list of free ones.


Those four titles cover all that I see people use CD/DVD recorders for.

Just another suggestion

I have Ashampoo burning studio 2010 and it is actually a very nice burning suite. If you don't mind registering of course, you get a free key.

Or you can get Ashampoo burning studio 6 free from the site but a bit older.

I have used site for some time, grabbing at the free offers when they come around and usually you get full free software and unlike GOTD "which is another story", it's not limited if you reinstall your OS so once you have your key, you have your key.

Some used this for an alternative to Nero so just a thought. Waiting for the Holiday V3 specials to kick in Wink

Anyway, here is a Nero lite, depending what you need and is free...
