Nero Free, is the easy-to-use yet powerful multimedia suite. With Nero 9 Free you'll be able to easily create or copy data discs while making minimal changes to the default settings of the application.
This version might be interesting for those who think that the complete Nero suite is too bloated. Additional features and functionality are available with an upgrade to Nero 9 full version, which you can always do afterwards.
In other words, Nero 9 Free Edition cannot be used to make or create audio CD, create or burn ISO image, rip or copy DVD movie or audio CD, edit or author DVD, and many other functions on Nero 9 complete suites are been removed. However, Nero 9 Free Version, with only Nero StartSmart Essentials, can satisfy the need of many people who simply wants to backup data files to disc, or duplicating CD or DVD discs. The only upside is that Nero 9 Essentials Free Version can be used for unlimited amount of time without restriction.
