    but i own a legit paid version and i decided to install nero micro since ALL I WANT IS THE BURNING ROM.. arghhhhhh.. anyway.. i install my key and every maybe 2 or 3 start ups it says my key is not legit.. what the hell?? i email ahead they ask for my key and they say it is legit nothing wrong with it.. they issue me a new key

    about 2 weeks go by and now i get the same thing again now i cant even open the program at all even like before if i just kept trying it would eventually open now its locked on the "key not valid" screen... forget nero for good this time im fed up..

    i know i asked a while back about alternatives.

    i did not like really any of the free ones.. imo they all lacked one feature or another..

    all i need is the burning rom from nero and id be set since i use other programs for the rest of the jobs.. is there a paid burning program that has anywhere near the options and quality of consistant burns as nero does.. ashampoo would be my pick if i could manually write track names to audio tracks... that one reason is why i keep uninstalling it.. i wish they would change that already...i dont care who it is or honestly at this point what it costs if it can do what i want.. i even own a paid version of gear pro.. 99$ it is a fantastic burning engine but lacks any kind of features which nero has .. it doesnt even tell you how much space the added files are going to take up on the disc until you click burn then it simply says there is not enough space.. for a 99$ program that is supposed to be as highly regarded as gear is it lacks A LOT..

    please throw out some things for me to try out.. again as close to a nero engine as possible would be awesome.. thanks again

    well.. infra, img burn, gear pro, nero, ashampoo, oront, and a ton of others i honetly dont even remember.. i just want the interface of nero (style wise none of this point and click junk i want full control over my session), and the options it bring (just from the burning rom itself not the recode and everything else i dont need any of that stuff)...

    please throw some things out there minus what ive stated above even if i may have already tried them ill do it again since i tried so many i just dont remember now.. hope i missed a great thing out there but i doubt it..

    It has a full version trial I think you might like it. It does everything I expect in a burning program. Rocky

    Why dont you just do a fresh install of Nero 8 and use custom installation, and just uncheck what you dont want installed :doubt:

    Nero is bloated. I switched years ago to Ashampoo Burning Studio. They also offer free versions for life if you keep your eyes out.

    as i said it lacks in one thing i need it to do and thats allowing me to edit track names

    even doing a fresh install of nero 8 it still loads all kinds of junk all over vista and is nearly impossible to uninstall even thier removal tool does not fully work..

    and iregardless the issues i have will not be solved by doing that

    Have you tried Nero Micro? I had key problems with the full version as well, but the micro installation has worked without a hitch.
