    NERO 2014 -- Loads of errors -- None on same DVD with K3b

    Hi there

    I used to LIKE NERO -- now it's overbloated and I regularly get DVD errors when running it on Windows 8.1 - fortunately I'm burning DVD RW's rather than the use once variety. The quality of the blanks is fine as is the DVD writer.

    I tried burning the same data on my Linux system using K3B (Free of course) -- same DVD -- not a single error including veryfying after the write.

    I'm not sure what the difference is but the Linux system seems to use MKISOFS or GROWISOFS which perhaps is a more reliable engine than what the PAID FOR NERO software uses. I shan't update NERO again.

    If you have Linux in a VM give this burning program a try - I don't think you'll be disappointed either -- also can burn .iso's etc. I think it burns quicker too -- I'm getting the full 4.0X for DVD+RW for the discs I'm using.

NERO 2014 - Expensive and doesn't handle subtitles
Hi there. I'd advise people NOT to buy Nero 2014 for their video editing program -- While it has lots of nice features I'm amazed that it does NOT enable you to add Subtitles. It's amazing when Free programs like Handbrake do and a professional so called polished program omits this really basic...

Nero 12 Platinum issues viewing Blu-Ray
I recently purchased and downloaded Nero 12 Platinum, in part to give me a method for viewing Blu-Rays. I haven't done much with it yet, but it does fine viewing Blu-Rays on my system until I go into full screen mode to get rid of the Windows controls, then everything freezes. All I see is a nice...
