When it comes to optical disc (CD/DVD/Blu-Ray) burning software, AppNee guesses most people will think of Nero (originally called Nero Burning ROM) first! If I regarded it as the big BOSS among all burning tools, that would never went to far.

As the leading burning software in the whole industry, although Nero is getting fatter, accordingly, its functions are also becoming more and more, which is forgivable more or less. It developed from a simple burner with single function to now full-featured HD multimedia suite which integrates optical disc burning, creating, playing, video editing & converting, data backup, and many other related functions in one place, as well supports ISO image burning and Disc image mirroring.

For any classic software, I can’t summarize all its advantages one by one in a short essay, so I just shut my mouth. Instead, AppNee are responsible for providing everybody the effective resources of all versions of Nero as usual, including many classic versions.
