Nero 6 Ultra Edition Review - Ahead Software
4.5 Star Review  audioholics.com - Oct 28, 2004

When I was asked to review Nero 6 Ultra edition, I thought - what a great idea. With all of the media integration happening in today's digital media-drive market, it's a no-brainer that consumers are going to quickly get to the point where they want to do more with their CDs and DVDs beyond simple data storage options presented by the Windows operating system. Reviewing a suite of software tools is not an easy task. For reasons that are obvious, I can only summarize some of the key features and applications contained within Ahead Software's flagship all-in-one CD/DVD media application. The best way to cover this Swiss army knife of software is to go through some of the key applications one by one and try to give a clear picture of just what this compilation of programs can do.

Weakness: bugs

There is a bug in 6.6.0.18 and probably several versions: one can only add to an existing session ONCE no matter what. I always choose do not close to allow later files to be added but still it only lets you do it once. The next time I get the same type error you got. I have BENQ DVD DC DQ60, DMA is ON and was recording data cd but think that is irrelevant. Problem is with NERO software, adds more and more useless things to clutter up you hdrive and registry etc. and the basics get worse!!

Strengths: appears to do anything regarding CDs/DVDs

Weakness: program apparently does not verify itself/it's progress/work; expensive; must pay for customer service, as they will not answer e-mail

bought the program for backup: the backup failed & they have yet to fix the problem (and I'm up a creek, as I found out my backup failed after I formated the hard drive). backup program is most important program you'll ever use, & Ahead/Nero has utterly failed at this

1 Star Review   By member zimmelman - Apr 4, 2005   

Strengths: Fast DVD Burning

Weakness: Everything else...

I purchased Nero 6.6 Ultra based on the PC Magazine reviews. I honestly can't understand the high rating they gave this software. First, let qualify myself. I have been developing software for almost 20 years. I have reviewed software for some major magazines, and I still write an occasional technical article for the geek community. Now for the meat... I purchased my copy directly from Nero and downloaded the software; which was about as intuitive as the software itself. There are about 7 installation files that must be downloaded, and there wasn't a "readme" to be found anywhere. So it’s anyone’s guess which file should be installed first, second, etc. Nero registers itself for every type of file on your system, including Icons (*.ICO). This causes the file explorer to mask the actual icon image with the Nero application icon. They also register JPG image files, which they *DO NOT* support! Or at least none of Nero’s software installed my system will open one. The DVD editing is so basic and so confining I found it almost useless. I found I got better quality using Microsoft’s Movie Maker, then simply burned the DVD using Nero. Nero’s “Wizard” approach to DVD editing and authoring is just too cumbersome. Having said that, the actual time to burn the DVD was fairly fast; about 40 minutes for a 25 minute movie on a 1.8 Pentium M class CPU with 1 gig of ram. If you don’t mind mediocre software that is anything but intuitive, then Nero is for you. As for me, I’m still looking for some stable, feature rich DVD editing software.

Weakness: Fraud Information on Web Site

Customer service inapt. Failure to answer e-mails. Download corrupted. Over charged by Euro Exchange Rate. Order cancelled. Nero refused to refund. A German company - hard to get issue resolved. Recommend Roxio instead. They answer e-mails and generally give good service and an excellent product - Roxio Creator Version 7.

5 Star Review   By member erniemink - Apr 1, 2004   

Strengths: Does everything other CD buring programs simply will not do or do well.

Weakness: None. Just keep the program updated

I know all of you are crying about this being a so-called illegal copy. Well, if they offer a serial number and I can register it and I ordered it from a REAL software manufacturer with a REAL address and phone number, then it cannot be that illegal because they are selling it with their legitimate business license. If Ahead Software deoes not like it so they say then why has it been sold for so long this way? I got a 100 dollar program for much less and that is fine by me! I got it from a source that sells an OEM version, which simply means it is the full product without the actual book, materials or box. It still does everything even when updated. If there is one or two minor things missing from the box version they are not useful and important. I know what the full version is and this program has 99 percent of it which is basically everything and all that matters. Any program that does this much is easy to learn but takes time to master right. Most of us will just use Nero Express to convert files in music or burn CD's because that is all that is necessary and it has a selection for normalizing audio files and it does an excellent job of that everytime. EXCELLENT PROGRAM FOR MUSIC AND VIDEO DVD!

3 Star Review   By member jjbeaman - Mar 15, 2004   

Strengths: E-Z to use, can't beat the price.

Weakness: Not all burner's are supported.

What they don't tell you is that it's an OEM version. It's not the full product. CD only. Does not include BackItUp, and some other part's not included. It's not even close to the Ultra 6 Suite boxed version. But for $10 it is well woth what you do get. It's easily updateable, but only update's what comes with it. I emailed Nero to find out why the other progam's weren't updated. They told me it was an illegal copy, supposed to be bundled with cd-rw, and not sold as a standalone product. They're trying to stop the sale of oem cd-only, but said it was difficult and they're lawyer's were working on it.

Depends on which version you get, I bought one of the cheap Ultra 6 oem cd's and when I went to update it to the new 6.3 (a free update from Ahead web site) it installed and disabled ALL Nero software and said I had an invalid license, and would not accept the license I was furnished, but it worked good before the update.

Strengths: does all including direct dvd copying, you just have to downlaod additional software.

Weakness: Have not found any as of yet.

Works well with dvd shrinks3.1 which is a free program designed to work with nero for dvd movie compression and burning. Very simple to use, and just as effective as xcopy.

1 Star Review   By member worldcitizen - Jan 16, 2004   

Weakness: Too Expensive

Apart from the XP built in burner there are many FREE programs that can do the same tasks but without a cash outlay. My suggestion - Buy a new burner (if you don't have one) for the same price as Nero and get a burner with a free copy of Nero! There are plenty of burners that give Nero away for free so why buy Nero when you can get a burner as well as Nero for the price of Nero?? I bought a second burner for the price of Nero and got Nero FREE!! Be smart and intelligent and you will save heaps!

Strengths: Nero Ultra Edition 6 sounds good to me

I purchased mine from Global Computer Supply. It sounded like a good deal. But they misrepresented the product. They sell only the basic version and not the Ultra Edition as promised. You only get Nero Express without the features of Nero Burning Rom. I suggest that you avoid doing any business with Glob2000 as they have a problem with integrity. thx

2 Star Review   By member khattak - Dec 17, 2003   

Strengths: Maybe good for burning CDs but I wanted to burn DVDs

Weakness: I bought the software to burn DVDs and make sure I could compress source DVDs with more than 4.7 GB of information on to target DVDs of 4.7 GB.

I am the owner of earlier version (5.5) and liked it. My specific purpose of purchasing the 6.0 version was burning DVDs with compression during the copying process. This could not be done. I have not been able to even make copies on more than 1 target DVD when the source was more than 4.7 GB. The product was advertised as sending entire package (rather than only the CD containing the software as it was done earlier) but I got only the CD.

2 Star Review   By member ljacee - Dec 11, 2003   

Strengths: None that I've found yet!

Weakness: Poor documentation. I didn't find it very user friendly. Confusing to use, and the Slide presentation tool is weak at best!

I purchased this product because I needed a tool to help me create a good slide presentation that I could burn in VCD format. I am VERY disappointed in the available transition tools (there are none like wipes or fades for photos, or at least those that were there I could not get them to work). I haven't figured out yet how to burn my presentation to a format that will work on either a PC or a DVD player..that is probably me as CD burning is still new to me but neither is there good documentation to help me understand what I might be doing wrong.

Strengths: great piece of burning software. dvd burning and cd burning. authoring tools for home movies.

Weakness: none really

great software, dvd and cd burning at its best. pretty good service and support. quick email responses. no problems so far. I like it better than roxio. It has an option to burn iso images which is the major deal for me.

5 Star Review   By member shenkty5 - Nov 25, 2003   

Strengths: User interface is easy to follow and read. Multiple programs to run are also great.

Weakness: Sometimes can be overwhelming.

Nero 6 offers great performance as well as multiple options. Can burn audio cds, mp3 cds, dvds, vcds, svcds, and pretty much anything else that can be done with a cd burner.

5 Star Review   By member jonlammers - Nov 25, 2003   

Strengths: Does everything with DVD and CD writers. Fast, includes testing of drives for comparison reasons.

Weakness: None I have found.

I have received this package. It includes the main tool for writing DVD's and CD's that is the best on the market. This tool also does testing of speed and quality of the drives and error checking on disks. Also included are bonus packages for creating DVD content, Mixing, playing and recording audio, and other useful tools.

Strengths: Very easy to use - Copies very quickly - Priced right - Works great with DVD

Weakness: No auto update

This is the number two product for cd copy. The price makes it number 1! I have tried all the top ten cd/dvd writters on the market and I will Nero from now on.

Strengths: Burns any type of Disc you want, loads of options if you need them, Easy to use, No errors at all.

Weakness: You have to manually download any updates, theres no auto update.

This is the best cd burning software out there and it does alot with DVD's too. Very easy to use. Fast too. Enable expert mode and you will see even more burn options.

Strengths: Has alot of power &love the prefs for just about anything.

Weakness: Would like some of the interface adjustments to be memorized.

Liked Nero6 so much, I un-installed: ECDCreator 6dlx,record now,nti cdMaker. ECDcreator was too buggy, NTI locked me up and Record now was terrible at flipping about between DVD and CD jobs. I didn't expect the Nero6 to be that great... but it was. Good Job Nero6
